PREFACE. 



The author of the " Hunt Genealogy " makes no claim to the merit of genius in 
genealogical research ; his original design and purpose having been to prepare, for his 
own use and gratification and immediate family friends, a somewhat extended record 
or register of his ancestry, dating, if possible, with the settlement of his first Ameri- 
can ancestor : and here the work would have terminated, had it not have been the 
earnest request of numerous correspondents to extend the collection. 

More especially, we acknowledge indebtedness to the compiler for his indefatiga- 
ble perseverance, industry, and zeal in the collection of such extended statistic and 
biographic records. 

Had we even imagined the labor and patience requisite to such an enterprise, we 
should not have ventured beyond our original plan. 

Well aware that we are to be assailed by diverse critics, we nevertheless have the 
consciousness of ultimate approval in the preservation at least of valuable records. 

Our only regret is, that the labor co-operative with the compiler should not have 
been taken up by more competent hands. 



Boston, April 15, 1863. 






INDEX. OF GIYE1S 



ni' 



The "Index of Surnames" and the "Index of Places" are at the conclusion of the volume. 

The figures within brackets [ . . ] refer to the matrons of the family (the wives and mothers), who acquire our nam 
of course, by intermarriage. 

The figures unenclosed are applied to all, sons or daughters, who arrive at the married state, &c. 

The figures within parentheses ( . . ) are applied to all of an early age, and all who have not become connected 
marriage, or are not thus heard from. 

The signs *, f, t, &c, designate within the index the reference to different modes of spelling.

PRELUDE. 



At the very incoming of merry May, the floral month of the year, this preliminary page (one of the last of actual 
process) goes beneath the jocund crash of the clamping press, and becomes placed to precede all our winter labor on the 
real body of the work. And thus we would advancingly strew, with flowers for others, the toilsome path where we have 
been. If it has at anytime seemed weary, perplexed, forsaken, — it is all delightful now, when the halo of summer days 
makes the wildly devious path of genealogical demonstration ornamental and radiant, most completely auspicious of the 
best and purest satisfaction to the faithful and earnest follower. — Page 79, Hannah F. Hunt ob. May 3, 1862; doubtless 
one of the called and accepted to mansions above. Page 202, G. W. Hunt m. May 1, 1850. Mrs. Hunt ob. recently; had 
Ella H. Hunt, April 21, 1855. Many have come and departed while our pages have been getting forward. We can 
best proffer ultimate recognition on the margins or spaces of the copies. What can we say of the innumerable living ar 
departed whose names we could not bring to the page ! Like an ancient navigator coursing over known regions, we hai 
demonstrated the existence of another world of our name ; a hemisphere totally obverse to the horizon of the know 
waiting for a genealogical Columbus to receive his outfit and enter upon, explore and reveal. Before proceeding 
actual work before us, we offer a profound and silent tribute to the mighty host whose names we pass — unmenti

GENEALOGY 



THE HUNT TAMIL Y. 



INTRODUCTION. 

It is a duty we owe to the patrons of the book to be exceedingly chary of words. 
Well we know that the printer's inexorable rule plies over and estimates every comma ; 
and the money that friends have sent in advance so confidingly, and that subscribers 
are so cheerful and prompt to pay us, must infallibly go to re-imburse the cost of the 
outlay. Therefore we are admonished to be economical. Yet we must be entertaining. 
Still more, we are bound to be correct, — to be systematic. We make a book that the 
public will get hold of: we cannot keep it from them. Every one who has married 
in this connection of name will be directed hither, sooner or later. The book will go 
immediately to the great libraries of the land. Woe if there be an error ! Learned 
people will criticize ; and we shall be brought exceedingly low in the estimation of 
strangers, if there is aught unsuited to common opinion. But we rise from all doubt 
or concern as to the reception of the book among the family. It has been looked for 
with unflagging expectation. The researches have been conducted with zeal, and with 
a feeling of pious service to the past. Withal, to the divine blessing it is commended, 
with earnest wish that the offering may be of aid in one of the departments of service 
to mankind ; that the gracious intent of the design may be perceived ; that its merits 
may be appreciated ; that no unjust calculation may be formed of its purpose, and 
therefore no disappointment. 

Ample time has been had ; so that no one may believe that we have been hur- 
ried or worried in what may be considered a vast undertaking. Look at the encou- 
raging aid we have received ! When the erudite and accomplished past Lieutenant- 
Governor of Massachusetts wrote us a long letter of intelligence, and ministers of the 
gospel were writing in answer to queries we have propounded in aid of this work, 
the impression came with grateful force to us, that this was a name well favored. How 
few, thought we, of the many family-names, in common, every-clay use, have had the 
attention of the wise and good devoted to their historical investigation, and a special

chronicler employed to write a book thereon ! It will admonish the inheritors tfeof 
certainly to be good in their day and generation ; to try and live good lives, be ;>re 
and more pnre and virtuous as clays increase, and help to make the public life htix, 
that we may not be destroyed as a nation for want of the requisite collective amou of 
virtue to save a people. Various pleasant sentimental thoughts occur in the pass';e 
of the separate departments of the work under our hand. Pleasant sunny days jll 
over the task. Brooding nights, rich in reflective opportunity, have flitted qui&ly 
awav since 'we have begun the work ; and here it is at length, not all that we could do 
to it, but all that the rapid movement of life permits us to separate from the living 
present, and devote to the dear and honored past. 

And now our business and retired friends of abundant and competent mean's' 
will please bear in mind, that this book is placed for disposal at a marketable rate of 
price, which covers not the cost ; for we could not accumulate pelf while contemplating 
and preparing this exalted theme. Let us be therefore in reception of douceurs of 
that which you cannot always retain, and afford a lucrative example, to make this 
vocation well rewarded, and so creditable for future followers. 



EAELY ORIGIN OF THE NAME. 

Monday, June 16, 1862, one of the most fresh and lovely mornings of the month, 
the ready attention of the ever-accommodating Mr. Sibley, of Gore Hall, Cambridge, 
enabled me to devote a forenoon study in the spacious and retired alcove, where I 
took down tome after tome of the huge British Commission Records, — the source of 
early mention of this name. 

Huntedon, Huntend, Huntyngton, and various other modes of protracting the 
monosyllable, are in frequent use in Bedford, Northumberland, Gloucester, &c. ; occa- 
sionally Hunte and Hunt', which we may suppose to be a contraction acquired of one 
of these longer and unwieldy names. Hund is in the Welsh Chronicles ; and we get, 
among living persons, a tradition that one family came from Wales. Hunter is exclu- 
sive in Scotland, as the " Inquisitiones Generalis " shows ; though not one Hunt in 
that worthy chronicle. 

Rymer's "Fcedera" supplies the name of Roberte le Hunt in Lancashire, 1327. 

Inq. Post. Mort. &c. t. Edward III., 1327-77, p. 219, has Johannes Hunt de 
Spryngefeld ten' vocat' le Huntes ut de honore de Peverel. Essex Co., John and ux.

and Laverton, Yorkshire. Williamus de Chuton comes Hunt de Maxstocke, Warwick-

shire ; Walter Hunt, Somersetshire. Rev. Thomas Hunt left sixty acres land in Lin- 
colnshire. 

Time of Henry VIII., 1509-47, Sir T. D'Arcy sues Henry Hunte, of Rothwell, 
Yorkshire. James Hunt in right of father vs. H. Hill and others for lands in Hilling- 
ton Manor, Middlesex, &c. John and Thomas Hunt were of Rothwell. 

Richard Hunt vs. Smyth sues for land in Bekkyngham, Aldensha. 

Time Edward VI., 1547-58, Richard Hunt vs. Thomas Hyde sues for lands at 
Lyme Hurst. T. Knolles vs. Edward Hunt, Richard Hale, and others, for title to 
Conscoghe Manor, in " Lancashire Pleadings " to be found. 

Parliamentary writs furnish us Adam le Hunt, 1295, at Nottingham; John le 
Hunte, of Shaftesbury, 1802; Ralph le Hunt, Sussex, distrained to receive knight- 
hood; Ralph of Southampton, 1305; Walter of Sussex; Walter of Cambridgeshire, 
1297. A large number of extracts were made which are of no value here, and merely 
encumber the page, to prove tedious, and give no link to the American emigration. 
Sufficient that the name is of the most eminent respectability in the various counties. 
It is often referred to in the Journals of the House of Lords and Commons, " Gentle- 
man's Magazine," and through innumerable British periodicals ; establishing the name 
English unquestionably. It is the most easy English guttural in the language : sever 
the H, and the name is readily understood in the provincial mode of pronouncing. It 
requires no labial help of the vocal organs ; and, without a tongue, a person could 
utter this -name in the dialect of Wales. 

Its meaning, by the word, simply is " to pursue ; " and is applied to the sports of 
the chase, — to follow game. Hunting is understood as pastime, a..l more especially 
English pastime. The chase implies the hunter and his hounds on a jaunt for--pMa- 
sure, — healthful recreation that is considered by the higher classes, and is the national 
amusement of the land whence we derive a lineage. The name is found quite com- 
mon, although, in the sister isle, " fair Erin ; " as many others are there by transplan- 
tation. We have not neglected this auxiliary help to our collection ; and the fair sons 
and daughters of this race will be pleased in after-times to take up our book. and ^ po 
some trace of their lineage. 



RESEARCHES IN ENGLAND. 

It is many months since a commission was sent to Mr. Somerby, the unrivalled 
and esteemed investigator of old English records, to look up what could be found of 
some of the early settlers of this country by the name of Hunt. His researches have 
been completed ; and we now present, in fail" lines of type, what is evident from the 



GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



worn and dusty papers vigilantly inspected in his diligent search for the identical fi3 - st- 
comers hither. He is successful in determining, nearly to a certainty, the origin'' ' of 
William Hunt, of Concord, Mass., as coming from Yorkshire. There are more 
records gathered, which we do hot print ; and those interested are welcome any time 
to examine. 

The early English home of Enoch Hunt, the founder of the large Weymouth 
line, was previously ascertained. 

Not enough evidence springs up to offer as certainty on the other American lines, 
concerning their definite starting-point in the European world ; although quite a large 
research has been taken for this especial object, and we may be well satisfied ascertain- 
ing thus much. 

Very confident we feel that our good friends will praise us for getting by Mr. 
Somerby so many precious memorials of the dear and treasured English names, and 
excuse our not further advancing in this almost limitless department of inquiry.

Miscellaneous Branches. 

These comprise brief descents known of early settlers, not long continued ; and 
desultory pedigrees of all extents in later times. 

The plan of a line is to begin with a historical outline ; then give tables o* 
descent in a regular form, carried along by number from the first ancestor ; then add 
a summary of the allied names, with facts not in the tables. 

The Concord Line varies from the others in plan, being collected and arranged 
first, and more thoroughly obtained than most others ; and it is designed to exhibit a 
peculiarity of arrangement considered to be of much facility. This form is alphabeti- 
cal throughout ; and the line of descent does not flow consecutive, as in the others, 
but by reference of letter. 

Various schedules will follow after the production of the main contents of the 
volume, according to the space admissible ; which, at this stage of printing, cannot be 
determined. Wait upon us, kind friends, in cheerful support of our undertaking ; and 
let resources flow to us, which will be reverently and carefully garnered, and the due 
result of patience, prudence, care, and toil, eventually be seen in a worthy success ] 
our efforts. . 






AMESBUBT LIKE. 



AMESBUJLY LINE. 



The more recent researches made, June 19, 1862, at Amesbuiy, afford good evi- 
dence of the early ancestors of this line. In 1677, Edward Hunt, with othei- 
took the loyal oath of fidelity. In 1727, he left an estate of twenty-nine pour 
Five years after, the estate of his son John, amounting to the larger sum of two h~ ~ 
dred and seventy-four pounds sterling, was administered by his brother-in-law Daviu 
Clough, and distributed to the heirs. Then, in a course of years, Nathaniel Hunt, 
about to pass from this sublunary state, made his will, 1774 ; after which surviving 
six years, and then left his homestead to sons Nathaniel and Henry, and gifts to son 
Zaccheus ; to three daughters, one of them called Anna ; and two grandchildren, 
daughters of Moses Hunt. The whole estate, including seventeen acres of land, was 
computed at the moderate sum of fifty-seven pounds three shillings and eightpence. 
The family names, by a careful comparison of records, are in. the tables duly 
arranged. 

Migrations of the family soon were made to Vermont, New Hampshire, and New 
York. In the neighboring city of Newburyport are now descendants. 

We are in receipt of a letter from Dr. Charles W. Hunt, of Laconia, N.H. 
dated March 28, 1861. He gives a tradition of three brothers, — Philip, Humphrey, 
and William, — originating in Amesbury ; the last going to Guilford, Philip to San- 
bornton. Enoch, his great-grandfather, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, and 
filled appointments of trust. At the surrender of Burgoyne, he passed the sword of 
the general to Gen. Gates. Burgoyne smote his sword over the pommel of his saddle, 
and broke it, saying " he never would surrender it, except in fragments, to a boy." 
That boy was Enoch Hunt. He was also one of the aids of Gen. Gates. 

Dr. Hunt's location is a hundred miles north of Boston, on the Boston, Concord, 
and Montreal Railroad. His father has a farm on the shore of Winnipiseogee Lake, 
where there are two steamers running daily during summer. A few miles from 
the village are the mountains. The scenery all about is delightful. The place was 
once called, by Hon. John P. Hale, the Switzerland of America. Dr. Hunt promises 
to make our stay pleasant, if business or pleasure call us that way.

10 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 

Horace Hunt writes from Haverhill, N.H., March 8, 1861. Grandson of Henry- 
Hunt, who lived to be quite aged, at Kingston, N.H. ; had four brothers ; Zebulon 
and Daniel all that are remembered. He had five sons, — Moses, now somewhere in 
Northern Vermont ; Nathaniel and Thomas, deceased ; Henry, of Peru, N. Y. ; and 
Caleb Hunt. Horace is a graduate of Dartmouth, 184T. His brother, Caleb S., a 
graduate of same, 1832, married a daughter of Lieut.-Gov. John Reed, born 1810. 

Jona. T. P. Hunt writes us, Sept. 4 and Nov. 11, 1861. His tradition is, that 
his great-grandfather came from England to Newbury or Amesbury. His grandfather 
carried on iron-works at Gilmanton. His great-uncle Moses lived on the old home- 
stead, at Kingston, N.H. He was a fifer in the army of the Revolution : his brother 
Henry was also on the rolls. Both from Hawke, N.H. J. T. P. Hunt, Esq., is 
Tent of the Manchester Gaslight Co. ; and Director, for 1861, in the Amoskeag 
lufacturing Co. 

Nathaniel Hunt, of Newburyport, had family, presumed to be of this line of 
descent. 

Sept. 12, 1861. — The amiable and intelligent old lady, Miss Abby Hunt, at the 
corner of Lime and School Streets, Newburyport, was called upon this day, and told 
of the family connection, which somewhat confirms part of this line of records ; and 
the memoranda taken by Messrs. G. W. and W. L. G. H. form No. 121 of our 
file of documents. The house where the old lady resides is the house where she was 
born, and was built by her father Nathaniel, prior to his marriage to Miss Woodwell. 
How touching aDd Lender are the blessed reminiscences of the olden time around this 
venerable family home ! 

June 19, 1862. — This day a jaunt was made to the venerable town of Amesbury, 
the settling-place of Edward Hunt ; and the early lines of ancestry found very dis- 
tinct on the ancient records, which have been brought into a good form of copy. 
Thence to the charming town of Kingston, where more particular record of the later 
lines of this descent were made evident. The old book has " Feb. 24, 1729—30 : 
Paid to Mr. hunt for keping scool the sum of £16 : 5." No settler, we think, but 
some collegiate gentleman there for a term. Thence to Exeter, where classification 
was easily made for part of the list of names previously found. Rev. E. Nason, the 
most diligent and highly versed antiquary in the State, invited me to his study, and 
made an hour pass quite pleasantly. His collections are a wonder.

22 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



THE CONCORD LINE. 



This department of the book was the earliest prepared. My attention was first invited 
to the subject on the 9th of January, 1861, by letter from W. L. G. Hunt, Esq. ; and, 
at that time, the proposition to enter upon the labor was not acceded to. On the 15th 
of the next April, a personal interview was had with Mr. Hunt ; and the fulfilment of 
the task of obtaining extensive pedigrees of the various families was at once entered 
upon. From that time to near the close of the year, the families of many descend- 
ants have been visited ; more correspondence has been opened, and the various deposi- 
tories of ancient records reached by diligent travel ; and the whole subject has been held 
in attentive consideration, to make it yield the fruits of good inquiries and careful 
research. A file of correspondence recently accumulated by Mr. Hunt was the first 
material to apply to the work. The preparation of this for ready use was effected by 
making an index of the name of every person and place with great minuteness. Then 
the researches of Mr. Somerby at Cambridge, &c, in a volume of moderate size, was 
also indiced. 

The earliest call for the additional genealogies was made April 17, at 83, Chelsea 
Street, to the family of Mr. Samuel C. Hunt, who has been resident in Charlestown 
nearly forty years, — a respected and substantial citizen, engaged in West-India goods 
and produce-business, and who is recollected to have entertained the venerable Revolu- 
tionary patriot, Capt. Josiah Cleveland, who died at his house, from the fatigue inci- 
dent to his reception by the citizens on a public day, several years ago. The Bible- 
record of Mr. Hunt's family was exhibited by his accomplished daughter, Miss Olive C, 
a select-school preceptress of marked ability, and a faithful sabbath-school teacher in 
the Episcopal Church of St. John's, in Charlestown. Mr. Hunt's eldest son was 
ready to depart that day, and has since gone, to the war-department, in the commissary 
staff. Next, Mr. Reuben Hunt was visited, No. 3, Washington Street ; and the 
record of his family, all ready prepared, was brought to these pages. He has been 
many years in town, from Concord. Is a somewhat retired and settled gentleman, 
having pursued an industrious career in the morocco-manufacturing business in past 
years. His son, R. Hunt, jun., Esq., was well versed in some points of my inquiry;

and entries are, in accordance, made on various pages. April 19, visited the law-office 
at East Cambridge, supervised then by J. Dana, Esq. There are records of the early 
marriages, births, and obituaries of the inhabitants of Middlesex County, returned to 
this office of the court in ancient time. I gathered several of our name, and they are 
distributed in these pages. 

Also in Session Court Book, 1786, &c, pp. 52—53, it appears that Jeremiah 
Hunt gave bonds for fifty pounds, as ferryman from his landing-place on south side 
of Merrimack River, over Concord River to Chelmsford, thence over Merrimack River 
to the old landing-place in Dracut, for ten years. He has heretofore kept boats only 
on the south side of the river ; and there appears to Court the necessity of a boat on 
the north side of the river ; and he is afterward to be provided with a third boat. 
Page 82 : Heirs of Jeremiah Hunt petition to keep the ferry ; granted Aug. 30, 1737. 

Volume 1748 to 61, p. 300 : William Hunt licensed to keep a ferry from Tewks- 
bury to Dracut ; to have a half-penny for a single person, one penny for man and 
horse. Eifty pounds bond. 

Thaddeus Hunt, constable, allowed fifteen shillings at court, Sept. 18, 1781. 

April 20, visited house of John A. Hunt, No. 80, Sullivan Street. His Bible- 
record, and the information politely furnished by Mrs. Hunt, are upon the pages. 

Visited, at 151, Chelsea Street, Widow Elizabeth Hunt, who intelligently has 
furnished various particulars of Jonathan Hunt's family, leading to a knowledge of his 
pedigree. This great-hearted and philanthropic lady has adopted and supported five 
children, having none of her own, — three of her sisters' children ; viz., John, who 
bears the name of Hunt, and has wife and child in Franklin, N.H. ; Margaret Jane, 
married a Burnham ; Martha, married Norman S. Cate, of East Cambridge. Ann, 
daughter of Henry or Sylvester Hunt, she also adopted, who married a Newton. 
Judith married an Emerson. Mrs. Hunt is of the Baptist persuasion ; and, it is need- 
less to say, is eminent in Christian life and character. The record of Mr. Hunt's 
family was shown to me in a pulpit-Bible, of the weight of twenty-five pounds, for 
which he paid twenty-five dollars. 

Other families of different branches, -not of this descent, were called on ; whose 
records are retained now by me. 

April 22 and 23 are occupied with the records of probate of estates ; and the 
exceedingly precious memorials in this office will be reverently displayed, as the reader 
follows me, line by line. First, the actual document was unrolled by me which is the 
will made and subscribed by William Hunt, Oct. 21, 1667, and codicil added 23, 8, 
1667 ; which was proved in court, Dec. 17, 1667. The paper is of dimensions, four- 
teen and a quarter by eleven and a half inches, as I measured, — yellow with age, but 
firm and legible. The contents will be found on another page. Looking thence to 
vol. iii. pp. 63, 64, and 65, the estate of William Hunt, at Concord, was £596. 12s. ; 
at Marlborough, £86. 18s.: being 6 acres with house; lot, 4 acres; lot, 6 acres;

April 25, a tour was made to Lincoln, where a few records were found. Mr. 
Haman Hunt, ticket-master at railroad, was very affable and intelligent on subjects of 
inquiry. At Concord, a large research was made, and is embodied on the pages. 
Abel and Daniel Hunt appear to be the only men of long standing, in this original 
abode of the family, who have retained the name. 

April 30, a visit was made to the venerable registry of deeds ; and, combining 
what Mr. Somerby obtained early, the whole result of copying shows a sufficiently 
large amount of landed estate to have made the proprietors feel rich, and perhaps en- 
able those who have inherited to define their present localities with exactness. It will 
not only be followed with interest by the close reader, but referred to, by the aid of 
our careful index of localities, for frequent illustrations.

Per B. E. Rand, Exam. 

Wednesday, May 1, 1861. — Proceeded to East Sudbury, and looked over the 
new copy lately made from the old records of Sudbury ; thence to Old Sudbury, and 
copied gravestones ; then to Jonas S. Hunt, who is town-clerk. The very extensive 
records there, and Mr. Hunt's oral information, have largely added to pages of pedi- 
gree. The church-record, at Mr. Shaw's, and the private records formerly kept by 
Rev. J. Bigelow, owned now at Mr. Hurlburt's, were afterwards examined and com- 
prised. Mr. Aaron Hunt, a courtly and intelligent old farmer, was called on the next 
morning ; and the record of his family Bible was submitted for copy. Mr. Israel Hunt, 
near by, was visited ; and the family Bible was likewise shown, and the record copied. 
Mr. Hunt has lived a seafaring life several years. He sailed to St. Petersburg in 
1806, in brig "John," of Newburyport, Capt. Swett, owned by Capt. Coffin ; and has 
been to Liverpool, Stockholm, and Copenhagen. Very glad to state what particulars 
of his family would be serviceable for the work, and proffered the hospitalities of the 
house with politeness. Examined next the gravestones of a burial-yard not very 
remote. Called next at John Hunt's, a venerable man in years, yet apparently many 
years younger : furnished with readiness the Bible-record, &c. Next visited Mr. 
Andrew Hunt's family. Two family Bibles contained the records. One was " Te- 
prell, of Ann Street, Boston edition," 1824 ; the other, modern, large, gilt-edged. 
Nahum Thompson's family record was then called for, and copied for these pages. 

At the southerly village, Messrs. C. and E. Hunt rendered an account of their 
families by the records in the Bible ; and the verbal information of Mr. Gardner 
Hunt placed several particulars right, by his recollections of past generations. Passing 
a few doors beyond Mr. Hunt's store, called then at Widow Elizabeth Hunt's ; and by 
Mr. Nichols B. Hunt was readily placed in possession of the family statistics there. 
A fine ride in Mr. Hunt's cariole brought me to Mr. Reuben Hunt's, on way to Saxon- 
ville. The record of his family was briefly given verbally ; and the collections of the 
tour thus closed, and the cars soon after taken for Boston. 

May 6. — Several Boston citizens were visited in quest of their family records of 
the golden past, either of the rich and momentous or the simple and ordinary ; all 
alike, in combination, possessing value. 

Mr. Nehemiah Hunt, No. 15., Ash Street, was the first of this family descent who 



CONCORD LINE. 35 



was reached, after calling upon several of different branches. A fine family Bible 
there, and I believe all the particulars are had correct. Much of the intelligence here 
was verbal, and of the previous generation. 

At No. 63, Eliot Street, resides the family left by Mr. Charles S. Hunt, formerly 
of the custom-house. A circular piece of antique written work contained data of 
1758, &c. ; and the other records later, in a family Bible, entered very elaborately and 
minutely to the day of the week. 

Mrs. James Hunt and family, corner of M'Lean and Blossom Street, were ascer- 
tained to be of this descent ; and welcome was afforded to a copy of their family Bible 
and to verbal minutiae of information. 

May 7. — The records of the city of Boston, so abundant, and so laboriously pre- 
pared by indices for examination, were first this day entered upon ; and, on many clays 
subsequently, they were reverted to for all particulars that might concern our inquiry. 
The pages contain the facts, as classified and applied to all of this descent ; and many 
more are gathered for other pages. 

May 8. — Rode to Salem for the valuable Essex registries here. Record of Sa- 
muel Hunt's family, who so early came to Ipswich from Concord, are found on county 
books here, all so nicely copied by Mr. Kimball, always so competent and careful. On 
early book of court-records here, it appears that Edmund Baters, of Salem, being 
indebted to Peter Hunt, of Coffenswell, Co. Devon, for £18, constitutes John Goodman 
and Thomas Clarke, attorneys, to collect of Francis Simpson, of Marblehead, and pay, 
&c, Aug. 26, 1657. 

Essex Deeds, lib. iii. 311 : Samuel Hunt, of Ipswich, buys of F. Wainwright 
about one acre salt marsh, at Grape Island, 1673.

Hunt;" receipt of legacy, £52, — March 26, 1690-1 ; signed by Samuel Hunt of

Lib. cxxvi. 84 : William Hunt, of Norwich, glazier, sells Thomas Lord 7|- acres, 
Plumb Island, June 1, 1744 ; recorded May 4, 1769. 

At Salem, Lewis Hunt was the earliest ancestor of the families now residing there. 
Called on William Hunt, in the Asiatic Building, who is interested in the Hunts of his 
lineage. 

The census for 1850, 1855, and part of 1860, has been viewed, and facts drawn 
for the work. The registration from 1845, annual, kept at State House, has furnished 
some data. 

May 23. Proceeded to Holliston, and examined the records of the town, con- 
tained in six small quartos, marbled-paper covers, and of about a hundred pages each, 
and one larger volume. Then looked over church-records. John L. Hunt, of this 
town, is from a line of Hunts in Vermont. Came to Milford, the large and flourish- 
ing boot and shoe town, the interests slightly dashed now by imminent war-news. 
Calling at store of Hiram Hunt, was referred to Adam Hunt (since postmaster of Mil- 
ford). Three family Bibles afforded a harvest of data quite acceptable for the book. 
Thence, under the guidance of Deputy-sheriff J. D. Hunt, after calling at his house, 
and obtaining the family-record exhibited by the Bible, and by information of several 
members of the family there visiting, proceeded to the office of the town-clerk, and 
found ready accessible the old books of Milford ; and then, calling upon the venera- 
ble Deacon Rockwood, saw the old church-book of Second Church in Mendon, now 
appertaining to Milford. Parish-records, kept by Clark Ellis, were then visited, with- 
out any thing of note there. Called on Mrs. Lowell Hunt, who related, with much 
politeness, whatever circumstances of her husband's family might be considered addi- 
tional to the book. A kind, thoughtful, and intelligent lady Mrs. Hunt is. Leonard 
Hunt was visited, at work in his garden, and gave reference to Mr. Ballou for the very 
few facts there would be of his family. 

Went on to Hopedale, a mile or two out of the village of Milford. Rev. A din 
Ballou has the great family Bible, — Isaiah Thomas's Worcester edition, 1791, 
once the property of Perly Hunt, Esq. ; cost ten dollars. Four or five well-filled 



CONCORD LINE. 87 



columns made a marked addition to hitherto accumulated facts. This Bible is an espe- 
cial relic of trust with Mr. Ballou, for the perusal, at all times, by any of the family. 
A worthy and pious memorial it is. The next day looked over Mendon records, find- 
ing a few early items. Dr. Metcalf has given much research to this town-history of 
person and place. Thence to Uxbriclge. Hunts were here from Gloucester, H.I., 
descendants of John. 

Came on to the lively village of East Douglas. Here are the descendants of 
Ezekiel Hunt, who came to town more than a hundred years ago, and established the 
trade of a blacksmith ; which resulted in the growth of the axe and cutlery works 
here, which have a world-wide fame for their excellent manufactures. Tradition is 
adhered to, that Ezekiel was from Ipswich ; and to that is superadded England : 
while the Ipswich (Mass.) records make it greatly evident he was the son of Ezekiel 
Hunt, of the third generation from the first settler at Concord. Absolute certainty we 
have not to afford; yet it seems so certain by all appearances for, and none against, 
this conclusion, that we are strengthened to admit upon the pages all the family-groups 
of this line, as descendants of William Hunt, of Concord. 

Charles A. Hunt, at the Axe-works, where the records of the town are kept in the 
counting-room safe, made several items more clear by personal knowledge of various 
facts of interest. With Mr. Hunt, proceeded to Mrs. Balcom, the venerable daughter 
of Ezekiel Hunt, who enjoys an intelligent and happy old age. Every effort was used 
by the old lady to make a sure recollection of essential portions of her father's early life. 

Called at Anderson Hunt's house, and copied the record of the Bible. Called 
next at Leander B. Hunt's house, obtaining oral intelligence from Mr. and Mrs. Hunt, 
as well as the Bible register. Called at William Hunt's cottage on the hill, not ob- 
taining any record. Called on Deacon Warren Hunt, the principal in the manufac- 
tory of the superior cutlery stamped w. hunt. The family of Deacon Hunt and of 
his son were readily obtained, mostly as of record in family Bible. His son, F. W. 
Hunt, lives next door, in a mansion of great elegance, on the main street. The East- 
Douglas band were not far away up the street, just at this period of time, playing one 
of their skilful and delightful melodies of evening music ; and, if the toilsome gather- 
ing of facts this day becomes illustrated on the printed page, it may be a happy reflec- 
tion for the musicians, that their charming performance honored the labor, and visit to 
their village, of the humble and painstaking genealogical traveller, who may rarely 
come again, and whose pious task for the day may thus be distinguished, although he 
knows not that the compliment was intended. Mr. Joseph Hunt, at his house, related 
the facts to be supplied for his family, and was courteous and minute in explaining all 
that occurred of mention or inquiry. This visit ended the research. 

Saturday, May 25, 1861. — At the Worcester law-office, devoted three hours to 
the two books of marriages in the county-towns ; and some of the name found not to be 
readily had elsewhere. 



38 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 

The registry of deeds for many years was next investigated, and the outline fact 
of conveyances of a great number of Hunts taken, to make identities certain, and open 
new references. 

Called at A. A. Hunt's house, and received an assurance of some memorials of the 
Hardwick families, which have been received since by letter. 

May 26. — At Paxton. Heard Rev. Mr. Phipps preach. In the interval of wor- 
ship-hours, examined the old records of the town. Another service, by Mr. Jones, in 
Paxton or Spencer. Records of Spencer Church seen after service. 

May 27. — Town-records of Spencer were examined, and contents for this work 
noted. Continued on the road to Leicester. A very few items there. Arrived at 
Worcester. One or two items only, derived from the city-records. Then called 
at Widow Luther M. Hunt's. Next at Luther Stone's house, and a few family records 
obtained. 

At the Probate Office. Went through this rich collection of wills, &c, of the

And, in furtherance of the investigations to procure the material to compose the 
columns of pedigrees, visits have been made, and repeatedly, to some localities, as may 
be here enumerated, — to Massachusetts Historical Booms, Genealogical Booms, State 
Library ; archives in Secretary's Office, for census, registration, and military rolls ; 
Boston Registry ; Charlestown Records ; Suffolk Probate and Deeds, &c. ; Harvard- 
College Library, &c. 

July 9, took the cars for Ipswich, Mass., and compiled from the records service- 
able facts. Ezekiel Hunt appears not to have been a resident there near the year 1760 : 
the widow of Ezekiel, sen., was there in 1784. 

July 24, proceeded by railroad to Andover, Mass. At the town-clerk's house, 
examined the old records of Andover, with the discovery of some essential facts as are 
comprised in the pages. Next called at Mr. Chandler's house ; and was there made 
acquainted, by Misses Hannah J. and Mary B. Hunt, with the statistics of their family 
by recollection, and with much cheerfulness and alacrity. The excellent young ladies 
are exemplary members of the ancient church at Andover ; and their names will be 
found in the printed roll of that society recently issued from the press. 

Called on Madam Elizabeth Hunt, in the west part of Andover, whose memory 
was vivid and of avail in determining some points to certainty. 

The burial-ground near by contained several headstones of the family. 

Thence to Windham, N.H., with one or two items of record ; then to London- 
derry, with no success in finding the name ; then to Litchfield, where the early records 
have been lost ; then to Merrimack, with but one or two items of records discovered. 
Mrs. Riddle, formerly Elizabeth Hunt, of Goffstown, I called on, who is of the Milton 
Family. 

July 26, came to Nashua : called at apothecary's shop of J. Earle Hunt, who 
related his pedigree minutely ; thence to residence of Nehemiah Hunt ; then to City 
Hall, where the records of Old Dunstable were subsequently examined, together with 
all the more modern city-books. 

Then by cars to Amherst : looked over a variety of land-conveyances, some of 
which were of the special line of Hunts. Vol. xlvii. p. 228 : Willard Hunt, of Dub- 
lin, buys of Spalding land and buildings in Hancock, near New Boston, N.H., $500, 
Nov. 24, 1795, &c. At county-clerk's office, looked over census of 1850 and 1860, 
with the addition of many miscellaneous names to my copies. 

The Probate Records were next viewed. Mrs. Hannah Hunt, formerly Cum- 



CONCORD LINE. 41 



mings, inventory. Nov. 6, 1789, £400, vol. iv. 161. Isaac Hunt, of Hancock, made 
will June 5, 1839 ; codicil, Jan. 29, 1811 ; proved Nov. 2, 1841. To son Moses, $1 ; 
daughter Betsy Wilds, $10 ; daughter Harriet Hunt, $1 and the Tyrrel Farm ; daugh- 
ter Hannah Dodge, $1 ; daughter Sarah Hunt, $1, and land bought of Tenny ; daughter 
Elvira Dodge, $1 ; son David, 281 acres in Antrim, 80 acres in Nelson, 52 acres and 
three other lots in Hancock, 48 acres in Stoddard. Vol. xlviii. p. 145. 

Jeremiah Hunt, of Dunstable. Will, Dec. 22, 1827 ; proved Feb. 7, 1844. To 
wife Esther and three children. Witness, John Hunt. Vol. xlviii. 340. 

Again at Nashua, where the records were now examined with good success. Called 
on Mrs. Rufus Williams, three miles from the city, and heard from her orally a recital 
of her abundant recollections of her grandfather's family, which add very materially to 
the collection. She is a lady of portly size, and of merry good humor in conversation ; 
and expressed a desire to see the work in print, and have a copy. Her grandfather 
was Deacon Hunt, and one of the best men. 

Six valuable gravestones were copied at the burying-place, near Willard's Hotel. 
Tyngsborough was then reached, and records examined Avithout success here. Bille- 
rica records were soon after submitted to a research, and additional information here 
found. Tewksbury records then were carefully examined, and a great deal here 
added. 

July 28. — Visited Thomas Hunt, about two miles from Lowell, one of the worthy 
and substantial men of whom our annals are full : as the intelligence had been received 
by letter for these pages, but slight additional facts were added. The solid and excel- 
lent hospitality of his mansion, and the society of himself and amiable daughters up at 
Lowell to attend divine worship, made a marked feature in this summer tour, agreeable 
and very much appreciated. A family burial-place is on Mr. Hunt's farm : old stones 
were copied. 

Mrs. Samuel J. Hunt and sons were called upon in the interim of public worship, 
and the particulars of the family furnished with readiness and attention. Called on 
Mr. Jona. Hunt, who furnished the memorials of his family Bible. 

July 29. — Went up to Dracut : but one or two items for us on the town-books. 
Down again to Lowell, and copied from the scanty records there are there of the past. 
But, contented with all, returned well laden to Boston in the express-train. 

Roxbury records, families in Boston, and various other sources of information, 
have been visited with eminent success. 

The great number of letters that have been received, and the very choice, dili- 
gent, and careful character of some of the lines of correspondence we have had, merit 
very high encomiums. We accord, to all who have been kind in replying, a great 
measure of praise.

Explanatory. — The words in Italics (except "Item") signify wordsjof the will

The bars show the extent of every line as in the original will. 



METHOD. 

The posterity of William Hunt is now arranged according to the method adopted 
originally for this family alone ; referring, for the name of every person desirable to 
find, under the initial beginning letter of the given name ; and so tracing to father, 
&c, by each gradation, to the original ancestor. It is thought, by the compiler, to be 
a better method than ever adopted. Those who do not think so will find all the other 
lines arranged differently ; and therein they will be suited. This line was the initial

work of the whole collection. Most of all the researches have been instituted to make 
this more perfect ; and it is offered as a complete combination of all that has been 
received of the pedigrees of this line, after a great and thorough research ; and is be- 
lieved to be as full list of the descendants, of this name at least, as to show to all now 
living, who are traceable in this line, the greater portion of their ancestors correct. 
The miscellaneous pedigrees may possibly include some few traceable in this line. 
With a very slight study, and without labored explanation, we feel confident that 
all interested in inquiring will easily make way in these pages with pleasure and 
satisfaction. 

It may be well to add, that to each head of a group is affixed reference to the 

previous generation ; as, " son of ," &c. Thus turning, by the alphabetical 

direction of the name, to a forward or a past page, the trace is easily made through to 
the one progenitor of this line. The next words give the wife's name, and the date 
of marriage, if it is not indicated as of publishment. The first row of figures in the 
column of the family group is data of birth, unless signified as of baptism. The 
superior figure to a name in the group carries that in continuation for a new group. 
The date subsequent to a name is of decease. The surname or married name subse- 
quent to a daughter is again taken in the schedule of alliances. 

Spaces are left for the family to fill by a type impression, or by ink or pencil, 
where we have not got name or date. It is all easy. No explanation is needed. We 
know we write for intelligent and discerning people.

Adelaide L. Harrison. 



No issue. 

A retired merchant, and gentleman of leisure ; 
a member of the New-England Historic-Genea- 
logical Society of Boston, — an institution 
growing in public esteem and favor. He has 
resided at Port-au-Prince many years, in the 
transaction of mercantile business. 

"We have his letters under date of March 22, 1861, 
writing of family record to a good extent ; con- 
cluding, " The Hunts, in general, are said to be 
long-lived. Lower (in his ' Surnames ') includes 
the Hunts among the sixty commonest names in 
England. This fact betokens vitality of race ; 
for 'Hunt' is not like 'Baker' and 'Smith,' 
which, being trades, must have given separate 
origin to many families, entirely distinct from 
each other. The Hunts have never been a great 
folk : but there has been, about most of them 
that I have known, a certain sort of steady per- 
tinacious permanency and vitality, which has 
shown itself in a disposition to own a little land, 
work on it, and transmit it to their children ; 
and the putting into practice this characteristic 
naturally implies a fair amount of industry, tem- 



perance, and general good morals. And these 
qualities form the basis of the great New-Eng- 
land character, which, struggle against it as they 
may at the South and in the Middle States, will 
one day give the law to the Western Continent. 
Yours truly and respectfully." 



Benjamin P., son of Joshua. 2 Twenty-one years 
of age 1850, per census. 



Buel of Arlington, Vt, s. of Ezekiel. 3 Obt. at the 
genial age of sixteen. The beloved elder bro- 
ther of that devoted and godly man, Rev. P. R. 
Hunt, of the exhausting mission service at 
Madras. 



Bulkley of Littleton, s. of Peter. 4 
Betsy Chaplin. 



Oct. 8, 1794. 



This record of marriage was taken from the county 
returns from Winchendon, Mass., registered at 
Worcester. No further knowledge arises to us 
of any children to record. Would that this 
name, inherited from the sainted Rev. Peter 
Bulkley of Concord, could be transmitted in a 
line of posterity worthy and grateful in remem- 
brance thereof! 



Burt Alonzo, of New York, s. of Daniel F., b. 
Aug. 5, 1858. For this youth we leave the 
remainder of the page, hoping he may prove 
worthy of the good name given him, and able 
to fill the column with a flourishing list of sons 
and daughters.

greatly endeared to this family for his tender and 
affectionate visits in the lingering sickness and 
final bereavement of the eldest daughter. We 
hope the pre-eminent virtues of this good clergy- 
man may be emulated by his namesake, and that 
this lovely boy may arrive at a consecration, in 
due time, for the sacred ministry.

Hon. Ezra Hunt, of Bowling Green, Mo., died in Troy, Lincoln County, in that State, Sept. 19, 1860, 
aged seventy years. He was in attendance upon the Circuit Court in session there, in his usual health. Having spoken 
on a case in his charge in the afternoon, and having eaten his supper, after the adjournment of the court, he said he 
was not very well ; went to a fire in a retired room at his lodgings ; was conversing with a lady, with apparent cheer- 
fulness, when he suddenly appeared to be falling from his chair. He was caught; and physicians were called, who 
found that the vital spark had fled, and he ceased to live. He was a native of Massachusetts; born in Milford, 
7th April, 1790. He was fitted for college at Leicester Academy, and was distinguished for his knowledge of mathema- 
matics and the exact sciences ; and at Commencement, when he graduated, the subject assigned to him was " The Study 
of the Mathematics." Immediately after leaving college, he was appointed Preceptor of Leicester Academy; where 
he remained until the autumn of 1817, when he went to Cambridge for the purpose of studying divinity. He remained 
there, with the exception of four months devoted to keeping school in Lincoln, Mass., until May, 1818; when he went 
to Pulaski, West Tennessee, and took charge of an academy, on a salary of seven hundred dollars per annum. He was 
invited to remain another year, with a salary of twelve hundred dollars; but declined. While in charge of the Aca- 
demy in Pulaski, he pursued the study of the law under the direction of the late Judge William C. Carr. He practised 
three years in the town of Louisiana, in Missouri. From this place he removed to St. Charles, in the same State. 

In 1831, he removed to Bowling Green, Pike County, Mo. He was appointed, Jan. 6, 1836, Judge of the 
Circuit Court for that judicial district, with a salary of a thousand dollars per annum; and discharged the duties of

Saturday, Aug. 16, 1862, visited Salem. At 
23, Hardy Street, was enabled, by the polite- 
ness of Mr. and Mrs. Hunt, to obtain the pre- 
ceding data of the family, from the period of 
his grandfather, — about a hundred years. An 
uncertain recollection there is, the grandfather 
dying early, that one son of Frederick, sen., 
went to Easton, Mass. Frederick, jun.'s sons, 
Henry and William, were both drowned, from 
off vessels at sea. Samuel, of brig " Hamilton," 
died at Bessau, on the coast of Africa, of fever. 
A very good oil-painting likeness of him is here. 
Mr. Hunt is attached to the Salem Police on 
night-duty, and is otherwise engaged in the 
Gum Copal Works. His father lived several 
years in Paxton; then kept store in Charles- 
town, 1816-20; and finally removed to Salem. 
The first son was native of Salem ; next two of 
Paxton ; the daughter, of Charlestown ; the 
youngest son, of Salem. The widows of both 
grandfather and father were twice remarried, 
as the references show. Much pleased with the 
brief call upon Mr. Hunt, — an upright, worthy, 
intelligent, and courteous man ; and has beau- 
tiful and affectionate children remaining of his 
large and interesting family. 



the office with ability and impartiality, to the general satisfaction of the people of the circuit. He decided questions 
of law, but never addressed juries. When he made any communication to the jury, it was in writing. In the Con- 
vention called to revise the Constitution of the State of Missouri, in 1845, he was a member for Pike and Ralls Coun- 
ties, composing a district; and acted as Chairman of the Judiciary Committee in that body. Judge Hunt was a 
diligent student all his life ; and, having accumulated one' of the largest and best private libraries in the State of 
Missouri, had with its use, aided by a discriminating, logical mind, made himself a learned and sound lawyer, as well 
as a ripe scholar in general literature. And in all the relations of his life, both public and private, he was faithful, 
just, and true.

"In Tewksbury, Feb. 13, of consumption, George T.,son 
of Thomas and Anne Hunt; aged thirty-one years 
and nine months. 

" Mr. Hunt was a young man whose unassuming manners 
and kindly disposition endeared him to a large circle 
of friends. His loss will be felt with heartfelt grief 
by those who in life knew and esteemed him for his 
many virtues. We would tender our sympathy to 
his grief-stricken family in this their hour of afflic- 
tion ; and trust that they will bear, with a spirit of 
Christian resignation, the great loss they must feel 
in parting with one ' who is not dead, but gone be- 
fore.' " c. H."

The dry branches of genealogical trees bear many pleasant and curious fruits for those who know how to 
search after them ; and not less interesting, to the capable investigator, are the results of historical studies. The 
interest which has grown up throughout the country, during the last fifteen or twenty years, in these departments of 
literature, is a proof of great advancement in elegant culture, and in the enjoyment of the poetry and romance of the 
past; as if, by a long circle of cultivation, we came round again to the natural graceful pride of nation and family, 
which nourish the virtues and furnish the literature of savage and half-savage races. It is, perhaps, not generally 
known that there are State historical societies, often with large and valuable collections and libraries, in at least six- 
teen States, besides a number of similar county, town, and other local associations ; and that, in our practical, money- 
loving American hearts, family pride has worked so effectually as to cause the compiling and publishing (since the 
first-published American genealogy of the respectable name of Stebbins, 12mo, Hartford, 1771, pp. 24) of not less 
than one hundred and seventy family genealogies, or collections, of them. — Neio - York Independent.

At the very early age of twelve, entered Judge Turner's office, and began the study of the law. Admitted to the 
bar at twenty years of age. From that period, constantly (except while serving the town or commonwealth in civil 
or military offices) engaged in a large and tolerably lucrative practice of law. When twenty-one years old, became a 
member of the State Legislature ; and for seven years continued youngest member of that body. Democracy is his 
political faith. A member of all the Constitutional Conventions within fifty years past. Assistant-Judge of Court 
of Common Pleas, 1844. Resident at St. Alban's since 1804, the Judge now enjoys a retirement from the cares and 
labors of a professional life; yet, if the hour of our country's danger should approach, he may be once more sought 
for wise counsels, like Cincinnatus at the plough, and await again the entire acceptance and happy approval of his 
worthy fellow-citizens for some other distinguished office in their gift. 

Of an ardent and generous temperament, the Judge has, of late years, adopted what are considered very broad 
and liberal views in matters of religion. His first consort — a lady esteemed, deeply beloved, in the blessed sanctity 
of the faith — departed this life in the tender communion of the Roman-Catholic Church; and, some time after 
(June 7, 1852), the Judge and his present estimable lady were confirmed in the same ancient faith, finding belief, 
doctrine, comfort, in the same which has been a rock of trust for a hundred generations. Saints, martyrs, apostles, — 
what a glorious host bear them company! Taking down Gahan's "Church History" (Philadelphia, 1832, p. 360) 
from our shelves, we are astounded at the succession and honors in the old Church. Sweet ministrations of the 
saintly, all along the stream of time, to cheer those benighted ages of the past ! Wonderful memories ! Golden hopes 
of coming ages ! 

Portraits of the Judge and of the late Henry J. (his excellent son, who won a noble and independent fortune, 
and having thus "finished his course," welcomed death, and is lately enshrined in the silent earth), and of his 
daughter-in-law, the bereaved widow, are in the elegant hall of the mansion in Chelsea; and the representations are 
beautiful. Gladly would we make room for copies among these pages. A photograph of the mansion, modern and 
superb, we long to get, with its sunny slopes of ground, innumerable flowers in the garden, and choice view of the 
meandering Mystic, — charming stream. Soft, delicious, and yet majestic, is this region in the steady light of a 
glorious, warm August afternoon.

great ingenuousness and amiability, he rea- 
dily made friends of all with whom he came in 
contact ; and although cut off in the midst of 
hope and promise by that fatal malady, typhoid 
fever, he had greatly endeared himself, by his 
geniality and simplicity, to parents, brothers 
and sisters, and a large circle of companions 
and friends.

Before the period of mourning for the deceased has passed, we make, on this select page, a memorial of one 
whom we can hardly realize as gone. Amid the most pressing season of enterprise and usefulness, the hand of Death 
snatches ruthlessly the favored ones least to be spared. Mr. Hunt had come near the climax of his energetic career 
of business life, and could about be ready to abide richly, for some anticipated years, in the contented affluence to 
which he was entitled. The cup of balm, almost ready, would seem to be changed to gall. Yet not so. The retro- 
spection of his life is a presage that the reward is high for him in the future, for which he eagerly longed; and the 
benediction of our Saviour upon the mount, " Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God," we confide in 
as intended for our friend, so gentle, attentive, and considerate in all the walks of private and domestic life. Mr. 
Hunt's business life was multiform ; in the tenor of his irrepressible activity, strength, and native ability. Born of a 
farmer's prolific family, he was bred to the trade of a carpenter, and some time followed that. Then, at some period 
of life, was at New Orleans, conducting business as a grocer. Again, engaging, to better advantage, in business in 
Boston as a plumber, making twenty thousand dollars, and not lucky to save that from a final loss. Carrying on seve- 
ral years the occupation of a cutler, he was well known. Embarking in the manufacture of enamelled leather, he 
acquired forty thousand dollars ; out of which the world likewise gets the better advantage by his loss again. In 1859, 
with his esteemed partner, E. S. Goodwin, formed the New-England Belting and Hose Company, manufacturing superb 
articles, not of the ornamental, but of the useful description, which enter largely into commerce, and are of standard 
repute. Eubber goods, also, is an article included. He opened, in Alexandria and Washington, stores for the sale of 
commodities; and has kept his bow always bent. His life, we believe, was of unswerving integrity throughout, and 
in exact conformity to the cardinal points of true mercantile honor; and, yet more, with a conscience void of offence 
toward God and toward man. " Kemember me, O my God! for good." — Neh. xiii. 31.

Major Perley Hunt, oldest son of Daniel and Mary (Phillips) Hunt, was nearly forty years postmaster and 
merchant of his native town; and, for half a century, the most active and conspicuous of its citizens in all that related 
to the welfare of neighborhood, town, and State. 

Liberal and democratic in his religious and political views, he was always earnest and decided in proclaim- 
ing them ; a great admirer of Jefferson and Jackson, and always a staunch friend of the Democratic party. His 
natural and unaffected courteousness and geniality endeared him greatly, and made firm friends of all acquainted 
with him. For a long series of years, he was honored with the most important offices in the gift of the town, and 
was frequently elected to the State Legislature. Rarely, if ever, has the decease of any citizen of Milford been more 
deeply and generally lamented.

CONCORD BURIAL-GROUND. 

( Cherub.) 

" In Memory of 

Mrs. REBECCA HUNT, consort of 

Lieut. Reuben Hunt, who died 

June 28, 1796, aged 49 years. 

Her virtues, 

social, conjugal, parental, and Christian, 

commanded respect and rejoiced acquaintance, 

sweetened life, consoled in sickness, 

made a friend of death, and confirmed 

the hope of celestial glory. 

This stone 

perpetuates her memory, 

and invites 

imitation. 

' Frail man, give ear: 
The dearest joys of earth resign; 
Secure those joys that are divine.' " 



(17 lines.) 



Thursday, April 25, 1861. — A bright day was selected to visit the eminence, near the Main Street, ancient 
and sacred as the resting-place of the fathers. The stones are nearly all of the common blue slate, many of magnifi- 
cent size, aad protected by numerous thorn-bushes, not now in leaf, offering sharp resistance even to the inquirer, 
with reverent purpose, seeking memorials of the cherished dust. A sightly cemetery is close in view, with much of 
the modern white marble ; and lower on the street is another large and old ground, with no names of ours. Twenty-two 
more of our name are commemorated on the high ground: viz., John Hunt and wives Mary and Dorothy; Nehe- 
miah and wife Mary ; NehemiahS NEHEMiAH*and daughter Mary; Reuben and Miriam, children of Reuben 
and Rebecca; Deacon Simon and wife Mary; Simon (1702, in twentieth year); Simon 2 Thapdeus and widow 
Elizabeth; Thomas* Thomas 6 Thomas 8 William and widow Mary (double stone); and Mercy, w. of David 
Whittaker, daughter of Nehemiah Hunt,* who departed this life, Nov. 29, 1733, in the fifty-fourth year of her age.

Samuel 12 of Lincoln, s. of Samuel. 1775. 

Resided at Boston, in business. Buried 
in Lincoln. From Dr. Bond's copies, ob- 
tained of Lincoln records, it appears '■' Ada, 
wife of Samuel Hunt, died Sept. 16, 1801." 
How this should be, we cannot infer. The 
" Columbian Centinel " has this obituary no- 
tice : " On Saturday [April 4, 1812], sudden- 
ly, by the bursting of a blood-vessel, at the 
house of Mrs. Bowdoin, Beacon Street, Mr. 
Samuel Hunt ; an honest, faithful, worthy man, 
who had lived as coachman, for several years, 
in Mrs. Bowdoin's family."' The gravestone 
bears inscription, April 1, 1812, in thirty-eighth 
year. 4th is correct.

The Life of William Hunt. 
He was born in England about the year 1605, — 
two years after the tedious but glorious reign of 
the Maiden Queen had ended, and the mild and 
pacific James Stuart had come from his native 
realm to rule the three kingdoms ; and all the 
nation was glad at the happy change. It was a 



pleasant time to live in England. There was no 
very great emigration taking place, and no serious 
occasion for people to leave their native land to 
get a living. King James gave to his subjects the 
Bible in the same form we use this day ; and 
learning and wisdom received happy impulses from 
the new light diffused by revelation, spreading its 
lustre more widely over civilized life. Our ances- 
tor partook, in his daily career, of the free average 
advantage which a somewhat middling position in 
social rank allowed to realize the benefits flowing 
to the interior social state of the people from the 
refreshing access of intelligence and progress ra- 
pidly accelerating. His joyous days of childhood 
and youth passed into ripe manhood. Getting 
forward in life beyond the perils incident to all 
conditions, amid the protecting influences that 
guard the English home, — as from the early con- 
secration at the baptismal font by the revered 
pastor, to the gradual growth in school and church 
attendance ; under parental or friendly care, com- 
ing to know and practise industry and every good 
accomplishment that could be an attribute of the 
intelligent and likely young man ; then to the 
blissful married state, and to be father (before he 
left England) of at least two sons, — gifts tender 
and promising to infold and bring over from the 
Old World hither, to bear fruit and multiply, reple- 
nish the wilderness, and give seed for yet countless 
generations. 

Not long after the bright and happy state of 
conjugal life had been entered by our revered an- 
cestor, the policy of public affairs grew gloomy : 
and the hearts and wishes of worthy subjects of 
the king inclined them to leave the land of their 
nativity ; to forsake the castled hills and sunny 
dales that they were so familiar with ; to separate 
from the neighborhood of the kind and friendly 
nobility of the land, the earl and the earl's daugh- 
ter, whose presence was always inspiring ; to go 
from the domain of the good duke, who was so 
firm in Parliament to support the living interests 
of the kingdom, the strong arguer for right, and a 
pillar of the realm. Could William Hunt go with 
his friends and neighbors, and build a common- 
wealth, and hope to live ? Ah ! the effort was 
made ; the achievement apparently has been ac- 
complished. He sailed in the year 1635, with his 
companions, away from Old England, giving up ■ 
more especially the succoring and sustaining in- 
fluences of the best home society, — old neighbors, 
helpful and friendly (dear, good souls, known from 
childhood), — willing to lose all comforts and nur- 
ture so well accustomed. Greater sacrifices were 
to be made ; the rich and blessed communions of 
early friendship were to be cut off'. These quiet,

homely English folk were going in a merchant ves- 
sel to sea. A ship took them with goods, custom- 
house certificates, charts, compasses, sailing gear, 
ocean fare, and all things strange and unused, in 
hazard of all dangers of the deep. The company 
arrived safe. From different counties came the 
hardv settlers. The goodly and godly Peter 
Bulkley, Capt. Willard, the Wheelers, Thomas 
Bateman, and others, are all familiar to the page 
of history. The weary and faithful craft came to 
anchor at the quay in Boston. No inducement 
for the stanch husbandmen was there to remain, 
and get subsistence in town : so they came up soon 
to MusJcetaquid, now changed (from the barbarous 
Indian) to the sweet and intelligent name Con- 
cord, for town and river. Had they a dictionary 
to help them find this good name ? We will take 
down Walker's edition, and we find, — 

" Concord, noun substantive. Agreement be- 
tween persons and things ; peace, union, harmony ; 
concert of sounds." 

It was the sentiments of the hearts of our Chris- 
tian forefathers that moved them to bestow this 
choice name. The township, six miles square, was 
regularly bought of the Indians. The bargain 
was made by Capt. Willard and others, at the 
house of Mr. Bulkley, with Squa Sachem, Nuttun- 
kurta, and others, of odd and long names ; and the 
pay was duly delivered. The land was swampy in 
some places, with none but Indian paths, about one 
foot broad, and anon a broad plain, with thick, 
prickly bushes. Plenty of deep woods, where 
" sweet feme " grew so abundant, that in summer, 
under the sun's rays, the strong aroma thereof 
caused many to faint, and fallen trees impeded 
very much the early proprietors. Uplands they 
had, and meadows which overflowed at times with 
water unexpectedly, as the old records say. They 
could make hay. Fish were caught. Alewives 
were plenty, even to bestow to enrich the ground. 

The habitation of our ancestor was built, like 
the others, by digging into the bank of the hill, 
driving posts into the ground, and covering the 
top and sides with brushwood. This might be 
called a mere wigwam ; and so were the begin- 
nings of his American home. In process of time, 
land was divided, and the town-business orga- 
nized ; and affairs were conducted. He was one 
who petitioned the Governor and Assembly, in the 
year 1645, concerning matters of finance. 

Indians were near neighbors of the Concord 
people a great while. Their red faces and uncouth 
habits were not very congenial to the inborn and 
hereditary tastes of Mr. and Mrs. Hunt and the 
children, and to the other settlers from the fertile 
and good-mannered counties of England. Chris- 
tian efforts to civilize and train the ignorant to the 
practice of religion and peaceful arts was the com- 
manding sentiment of these refined and superior 
men and women ; thereby promoting content, peace, 
and amity. Labor was severe to bring the fruits 



of the earth forward. A very unyielding soil it 
was in some places. Final success was their bless- 
ing, in the comforts of a good living and gradual 
civilized prosperity. 

Misapprehension of the style of men who early 
came over is apt to be formed by those in no wise 
students of antiquity ; as if the emigrant was a 
mere ditch-laborer, or a wanderer with a pack on 
his back, in uncouth, ill-made, slovenly garments, 
with speech thick and barbarous, in no manner 
agreeable or polite ; impatient, blustering, or pro- 
fane perhaps. The old Puritan English settler was 
a man for us to revere and honor, a true gentle- 
man. We claim for the Concord patriarch an 
unsullied record, which we have diligently exa- 
mined and profoundly meditated upon, and now 
bring reverently forward to place as history for all 
coming time. He had given all his children scrip- 
tural names ; and we may be sure, from the sub- 
sequent prosperity in life of the three sons who 
extend the name, that they were " brought up in 
the nurture and admonition of the Lord." Their 
souls could here be strongly knit together in tender 
and affectionate communings upon the sacred 
themes of Holy Writ. Being often told of England, 
their minds would desire to partake of the great 
delights of refinements common in their ancestral 
land ; and, devoid of that opportunity, the privi- 
lege of such reading as prevailed would be eagerly 
seized. Thus pious books which were brought 
over, and the rich pages of Holy Scripture, might 
leave an impress effectual upon their forming and 
active minds. Goodness, purity, and virtue, tem- 
pered with the fear of God, amid the drear 
wilderness, were their characteristics. Call to 
mind, for the moment, the idea of intelligent 
human life, especially of the young and beautiful, 
being bestowed on this wild spot of earth, where 
only was the Indian and beast heretofore triumph- 
ant. The grateful presence of " the white face," 
like a saintly benediction, was a charm to the poor 
red man, when it looked only in joy and love. If 
we walk the streets of Boston, it has been said, 
now in this year of 1862, the observer, with an 
open and clear eye, cannot pass the most comely 
young men of the city, without a heart burning 
with tenderness and love. Their apparel graceful 
and rich, and countenances handsome, exquisitely 
beautiful, are symbolic of all beauty and sweetness 
within, and of the large grace of mind and charac- 
ter, which can, hy no possibility, belong but to the 
GOOD, trained up as such in parental care, and in- 
herently such by conditions which are absolute and 
beyond discussion. In as high ratio of excellence 
may we be justified in viewing those sons of Eng- 
lish nurture, — the beloved children of the Concord 
settler. Nehemiah, Samuel, and Isaac grew to 
manhood in the fresh and improving agricultural 
region of the country, conversant with its charms, 
and enjoying its delights. The heavy care of all 
needful labor was sustained by the elders ; and the

young were, as now, happy exempts. The young 
American of two centuries ago excelled the world 
in natural quality. By regular and long English 
descent, the attributes of that nation for clear, 
Saxon beauty of physiognomy, and often stately 
symmetry of form and accurate personal grace, all 
cherished, harmonized, and made perfection by 
temperance in food, exercise, avoidance of the vile 
drug tobacco, no knowledge whatever of fiery 
drinks, strict regard to rules of life inculcated by 
the teachers and ministers, all graces and re- 
straints blended to form these young men to 
strength and excellence. A type of perfect Eng- 
lish beauty of countenance, as of a young man, 
was exemplified by the Prince of Wales, when we 
saw him a year ago in Boston. Clear, open, bland, 
pure as pearl, a most sweet and pressing benedic- 
tion was in that look of love, wherever he turned 
a glance. The face being an index, what exceed- 
ing loveliness of person, nay, of heart and soul, 
may we know he possessed ! 

We can have now, by what is adduced, some 
glimpse or impression of the personelle of the 
father and of the sons from whom a long, flourish- 
ing line is derived. They are the multiple of a 
race for the future, which no man can number. 
Whether God, in his providence, will bring them 
through as he has conducted the past generations, 
prescience even may not know. We may trust his 
promises, that " seed-time and harvest shall never 
fail ; " and He, who careth even for the sparrows, 
will still rear up the sons of men, who are of more 
value, if they will obey. We may also remember the 
mighty promises to the just, the righteous, who see 
God, live by faith, and have his eternal rewards. 

Our pious, noble-hearted, and revered ancestor, 
after taking to his bosom a second wife, closed his 
useful life in the town of Marlborough in 1667. 
Domestic joys attended him to the last. Peace in 
his Saviour's promises, hope almost amounting to 
certainty he had of a life beyond the grave. Ours 
be his example, his faith, his reward !

BEST, Robert, of Sudbury, appears to have 
been brother-in-law of William Hunt of Con- 
cord. He made a will, June 21, 1654; and 
gave his house and lands to his two neplieios, 
Samuel and Nehemiah Hunt ; or, in failure of 
their issue, to the rest of the children of Wil- 
liam Hunt. He also divides his personal effects 
among the five children of William Hunt ; giv- 
ing a silver spoon each to Elizabeth and Hannah 
Hunt, &c. Inventory was taken July 12, 1655, 
£39. 105. 6d. Will proved before Governor 
and magistrates, 21st of fifth month (July), by 
testimony of the witnesses. It appears to us 
conclusive that he was brother of Mrs. Eliza- 
beth Hunt. The name is also found in York- 
shire ; whence Ave get such extracts of records 
as show (on page 7) the parentage of our an- 
cestors, the Hunts, with a very confident cer- 
tainty. And therefore Robert Best doubtless 
braved the perils of the ocean, side by side 
with the Concord settlers ; coming here and 
dwelling near his own kin, and leaving to them 
his entire worldly effects, when the close of life 
drew near.

Caroline A., dau. of Nahum Fisher, Esq., of

age of sixteen, in 1837. First wife of W. L. 
G. Hunt, 1845. Ob. Monday, March 11, three, 
A.M., 1846, deeply lamented. A character of 
superlative excellence. The funeral-sermon, 
pronounced March 13, by Rev. Mr. Kittredge, is 
a just and affectionate tribute to her remarka- 
ble goodness and worth. 

Mrs. Caroline A. Hunt was a daughter of Nahum 
Fisher, Esq., of Westborough. On the 28th 
of October, 1845, she was married to W. L. G. 
Hunt, Esq., of the same place. After a dis- 
tressing sickness of less than a week, during 
which, till within a few hours of her death, her 
disease had occasioned little alarm, she died, at 
three o'clock in the morning of March 11, 
aged twenty-five years. The funeral-services 
on the occasion were held in the Evangelical 
Church, attended by a large concourse of af- 
flicted relatives and sympathizing friends. 

In April, 1837, at the age of sixteen, Mrs. Hunt, 
with many of her associates, made a public 
profession of her faith in Christ, uniting with 
the Evangelical Church. Though, as she says 
in a note written a few weeks before her mar- 
riage, she was the subject, even from early 
childhood, of serious impressions, and often of 
much alarm, in view of her condition as a sin- 
ner, yet it was not till she was nearly sixteen 
years old that her heart was moved with any 
love to God. If, from the natural cheerfulness 
of her disposition, her piety assumed less the 
appearance of rigid devoutness, there is reason

FLINT.

to believe it was nevertheless sincere and filial, 
and that her hope was heartily and strongly 
fixed in Christ as her only Saviour, on whom 
she seemed confidently to lean in the extreme 
sufferings of her sickness, and in whom to rest 
as her surety for the life that is to come. 
During the last year and a half or two years of her 
life, her mind, though losing none of its buoy- 
ancy, was evidently impressed in no ordinary 
degree with the shortness of life, and the im- 
portance and value of a sure and living hope 
of heaven. Her correspondence during this 
period abounds with allusions and remarks 
which seem to indicate that God was preparing 
her for the early grave, which the issues of his 
providence have shown was before her. The 
scenes of those two years, which with many in 
like circuihstances are wont to engross the 
heart and mind, and awaken day-dreams of 
earthly happiness never to be realized, seemed 
with her to awaken more serious and earnest 
thought of the frailty of earthly good, and the 
importance of a quickened energy in preparing 
for heaven. 

" That life is long which answers life's great end." 

A sermon of great excellence and appropriateness 
was preached by Rev. Charles B. Kittredge, 
pastor of the Evangelical Church at Westbo- 
rough, March 13, 1846, on the afflicting occa- 
sion of the funeral of Mrs. Hunt. It was 
printed by Henry Mason, 18, Exchange Street, 
Boston, 1846, pp. 16, for a limited distribu- 
tion.

tonic will be filled by B. H. Booth, formerly station- agent at Lee, and son-in-law of

friends on their preferments as named ; and trust the people will realize a constant 
gain from them, in " offices of courtesy and kindness," through their whole public

HORACE HUNT, ESQ., OF NORTH PRESCOTT (see p. 60), 

Has addressed us encouraging letters, May 20, 1861 (54), Jan. 11, 1862 (264), 
in lengthy statistics of the family. His father was fifty years member of the Baptist 
Church in New Salem. His brother Luther was many years deacon of the Bap- 
tist Church in North Prescott, and representative from New Salem in 1837. 

Mr. Hunt has been member of the Baptist Church in New Salem and Prescott 
forty-six years. Several years a teacher of the common schools. In mercantile busi- 
ness thirty-five years. Postmaster over twenty years. Selectman and assessor a long 
time. Justice of peace over thirty years ; and now in service as county commissioner, 
Franklin County. Has been blessed greatly in pious and affectionate consorts, pat- 
terns of Christian virtue ; making earth's pilgrimage for him smooth and happy, even 
toward Zion's hill. 

JOEL HUNT, ESQ., OF MED WAY (see p. 64). — Notice by Rev. Dr. Ide. 

Died Sept. 1, 1852, Joel Hunt, Esq., aged seventy. He left behind him to 
mourn his loss a wife and ten children. He was a kind husband and an affectionate 
and indulgent father. Few men would be more missed in their families than he. 
His gocd sense, his kind heart and social nature, made him a pleasant companion 
everywhere. A man of native talent, an independent thinker, a shrewd observer of 
the world, he had acquired a rich fund of practical information, which often served 
to render his conversation both instructive and entertaining. His store of anecdotes 
was inexhaustible. Something appropriate and striking from this source seemed 
instantly to occur to his mind on every subject and occasion on which he chose to 
speak. In this way, he could at pleasure excite a smile, or draw a tear ; illustrate a 
truth, or administer a reproof; compliment a friend, or retort upon an adversary. He 
was a useful citizen, much engaged in the business of the town, and of individuals who 
sought his counsel and his aid ; and his accommodating spirit often led him to neglect 
his own business for the sake of giving aid to others. He was frequently elected to 
some of the most important offices in the gift of the town, and discharged the duties 
of these stations with credit to himself and satisfaction to his friends. He was good 
to the poor and afflicted ; always on hand in the day of trouble. A friend to law and 
order and good morals, he exerted himself for the promotion of these in the commu-

nity in which he lived. He was a cheerful supporter of the gospel, and a regular 
attendant upon its institutions. He spake freely, especially in his last illness, of the 
sanctity of the sabbath, the value of the Bible as the word of God, and of the truth 
and importance of that religion which it inculcates. His death is deeply lamented, 
not only by his bereaved family and the religious society of which he had been a fast 
and active friend for forty years, but with sorrow by all who knew him.* 

JOHN HUNT, ESQ., OF CONCORD (see p. 64). 

Monday, Sept. 22, 1862. — Another visit to the burial-place at Concord (see 
p. 81) revealed a lonely stone of valued worth: — 

" Memento mori. | (Cherub) | Here lies interred the | Remains of Mr John | 
Hunt son of Mr John | and Mrs Mary Hunt of | Concord who died | Aug. 7th 1770 
in the I 59th year of his age | He was train(e)d up from his | youth in the 
School of affliction | was steady fy frequent in prayer | § Religious duties fy as is 
hoped fy | charitably belie(v)d died in ye Lord." [Exact cojvj.] 

The newer ground adjacent, not before examined, commemorates Capt. Hum- 
phrey (p. 60), Miss Jane (p. 63). " ELLEN M., died April 9, 1861, aged twenty- 
three years. That life is long which answers life's great end " (p. 52). This 
young lady perished in the Concord River by voluntary drowning. She was a 
graduate of the State Normal School, and a very accomplished scholar. Exce T edmgly 
lamented by dear friends. 

MOSES HUNT, ESQ., OF MILFORD (see p. 73). 

Administration was granted on his estate, eight hundred and sixteen dollars and 
seventy-two cents, to Perley Hunt, Nov. 1, 1816 (Norfolk Records, vol. xxv. 65). 
He was educated at Harvard College in the splendid class of 1811. Gov. Everett, of 
the same year, occupies in the College " Triennial " the largest share of the honors in 
that distinguished record. Another classmate, a beloved Boston divine, writes, " I 
was intimately acquainted with him in our college-days. He was highly esteemed 
and respected by the whole class. He took rank as the first mathematician in it, and 
prepared the mathematical theses exhibited on its behalf on commencement-day. He 
also appeared, on that occasion, in a conference with William P. Mason and John A. 
Shaw. He was the strongest man in the class ; we thought him a perfect athlete : 
but he was of a most kind and gentle nature, the friend of every one. No one need 
have coveted a more honorable, as no one could have enjoyed a more unsullied, re- 
pute. It gives me a sad pleasure to revive these recollections of an old friend.

Though very slight, I hope they will not be wholly unwelcome to you " (Select Cor- 
respondence of W. L. G. H., Dec. 14, 1861, F). 

ROBERT HUNT OF SUDBURY. 

Admitted an inhabitant of Charlestown, 1638. Did not remain in town. Of 
Sudbury early, and had lands. Some possibility there is that he was a near relative 
of William Hunt of Concord. An inventory of the estate of Mrs. Susan Hunt of 
"Soodberie" was taken 24 (9), 1642, £48. lis. 2d. Sworn before the governor. It 
is conjectured that she was the widow of Robert. The great obscurity of record 
indulges an expectation of more light eventually on this lineage ; and with confidence 
these names are placed in this proximity to the Concord settler. 

SUDBURY BURIAL-PLACES. 

Their situation is attractive, verdure charming, loneliness delightful. Enough of 
an almost imperceptible spice of neglect, as usually pervades rural grounds, makes 
these quite inviting. An abatement of the rigid care of such places is a signal that 
the rigor and exclusive solemnity of grief has declined, and gentle forgetfulness has 
kindly come, and the memory of the departed is surrendered somewhat to the generous 
keeping of universal humanity. It is so much less obtrusive for a casual loiterer, with 
piety enough to sanctify his humble purposes, to pass into a partially broken gateway, 
or get over a dilapidated fence, and employ himself briefly in one of these forgotten 
retreats, — look over the moss-grown inscriptions, and ponder quietly upon the past. 
It is a relief, a refreshment. These opportunities are wanting in the overgrown city 
or town. ... In the Central Ground, commemoration is made of the following, in 
contiguous order : William Hunt ; 7 Mary, relict of William ; 7 Elisha, son of 
William and Mary ; Mary, wife of John ; 13 Mary, daughter of Henry ; Lucy, wife 
of Gardner ; — on a fine spire of marble, William, 11 wife Thankful, sons Abel and 
Asahel ; 1 — Peter, 7 May 17, 1819 (correct p. 92) ; Martin (son of Jonas, drowned) ; 
Joanna S., daughter of Sewell Hunt; Haman and Augustus (tomb, 1833); Wil- 
liam Hunt (tomb, 1835). 

In precinct, on the hill, William Hunt m and son William ; John ; 26 John F. 
and Mary L., children of John; Asahel 2 (|), 1853 ; Israel Hunt's tomb, 1845.

138 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



DUXBURY LINE. 



Edmund Hunt was an inhabitant of Duxbury early as 1637. It is supposed that he 
arrived from England, and first located at Cambridge. We learn that Edmond Hunte, 
from Co. Norff., was a stranger ; residing in London, at Bishop'sgate Ward, in 
1595. We find, by the " Commission Records " (see p. 2), Edmund Hunte, Law- 
rence Baguely, and others, were sued by Nicholas Longford and others, for the reco- 
very of Chorlton Moor, in Manchester Parish, Lancashire (41 Q. Eliz.), 1599. As 
the name Baguely (now Bigelow) prevailed early near Cambridge, it is possible these 
same parties came over. At Cambridge, in 1635, Edmund Hunte's possession is 
discovered for us by Mr. Jacobs, the suave and responsive city clerk, who sent us a 
research, March 15, 1861 (Doc. 10) : viz., house and about a half-acre in the West 
End, bounded south-east by John Barnard, south-west by Christopher Ken, north-west 
by J. Bosworth, north-east by the Common ; also about three acres in West-end Field, 
bounded south-east by Robert Daye, south-west by highway to Fresh Pond, north- 
west by Garrard Hadden, north-east by highway to Great Swamp. In 1636, he sold 
Joseph Isaack his house and half-acre of land, and about three and a half acres in West 
Field, and two and a half acres meadow to be laid out at Fresh Pond. Mr. Savage 
(historian) arranges Edmund Hunt of Cambridge as also of Duxbury. We conclude 
likewise ; and that he sold out, for the purpose of removing, in 1636. 

It is presumed he was a man in advanced years. We get no positive evidence of 
the names of his sons, or a certainty that he is the parent of those proximate to him 
in the line. We make the descent definite only from Samuel, whom we suppose to 
be his youngest son. From him the line follows authentically to the present day. 
Aided by the superior "History of Duxbury, 1849, pp. 360," very strong on main 
points, — a work due to the early devotedness of Mr. Winsor, and produced by him, 
with the most patient and perfect care, before he left study at college (as W. H. 
Montague, oracular in book lore, informs us) ; and the ancient infallible registries of 
the Old-Colony deeds and probate, with the excerpta of town-records, such as have 
survived an early destruction, sent by the excellent town-clerk, Mr. Peterson ; and 



DUXBURY LINE. 139 



the family records that have been sent us, — we present as complete genealogy as we 
are enabled to by the material to us extant. It could not be made as numerous as any 
other line. The good quality may amend the quantity. 

Mattakeeset was the original name of the Duxbury Plantation, part of the Old- 
Colony ground, in close proximity to the harbor where the Pilgrims landed and stayed. 
Laved by the resplendent ocean, and protected by the same defences that engird the 
Plymouth line of coast, this was a marvellous good and inviting spot for the early 
colonists, too closely abridged at their earlier landing-place. Alden, Stan dish, Brew- 
ster, Prence, were spared by their comrades, in 1632, to make the place permanent; 
and they drew settlers rapidly around them. In a few years, our ancestor joined 
them ; and his name, very prolific elsewhere, became implanted and nourishing with 
the most precious seeds of the " Mayflower " and other kindred Pilgrim stock, to 
make the wilderness a garden, and the solemn roar of ocean, for ages undisturbed, 
mingle with the glad notes of advancing civilization and prosperity. Different from 
the characteristics of the richly embosomed rural settlements, of which we otherwise 
treat, must be the style of these people of the maritime border. The thick and hardy 
forest here afforded timber to become material to erect vessels, engaging in adventu- 
rous fisheries, for which the place is famed ; and the skill in building gradually grew 
to the art of constructing ships of the greatest magnitude. Navigation has also become 
a prominent business here. A proud roll of ship-masters this place shows, — men 
who do business in the mighty waters, grappling with the ocean in its fury, sailing 
when stars light and guide the way through the pathless deep and to foreign lands, 
where the highest skill is requisite to conduct safe and profitable returns. We now 
enter upon the genealogy. All who compose the various families share in the avoca- 
tions peculiar to the seaport. Captains and tradesmen are of the number. Manufac- 
turers and artisans there are, if we do not exactly specify. Industry, goodness, grace, 
are qualities of all our worthy people in this line ; and we have been happy, very happy, 
in worthily bestowing labor on the records of this deserving portion of the extensive 
name which we honor. May their lives, however exposed and perilled, be perpetually 
sanctified by Christian grace ; and a harbor in heaven, capacious and deep, await all 
souls when earth's voyage is ended ! 



..." The bounding ocean smiles, 
When the quick winds uprear it in a swell, 
That rolls in glittering green around the isles, 
Where ever-springing fruits and blossoms dwell. 
It is a joy no gifted tongue can tell, 
To hurry o'er the waters when the sail 
Swells tensely, and the light keel glances well 
Over the curling billow, and the gale 
Conies off from spicy groves to tell its winning tale."

COURTSHIP AND MARRIAGE. 



On an old record where we look and find a marriage put down ; merely the names, date and minister's name, 
how much is left untold; not a word of the preliminary matters, or of the subsequent happiness of the connubial 
parties in their after life. In want of further certainty, we may go back to the first days of the young couple, and 
try and learn how the first attraction grew ; how the beauty, innocence and joy of the young friends became mutually 
winning, at school, church or in the family circle. Or not as far remote, when on the eve of mature life these des- 
tined partners became specially endeared to each other: the fulness of charms in the surpassing loveliness of the mai- 
den finding a complete counterpart in the intelligent and brave young man. They had opportunities to be acquainted. 
Fondness of each other and willing social freedom soon ripened to Love, whose weird and magic touch converts the 
world. Then such perfect relish as each had for the other in all they could do or say, made no other society so pleas- 
ing as to spend all their days together. It is idle to look at the adjustment of affairs to secure the desired ultimate 
Marriage. Very plain and practical are some of the considerations. The scruples of the mother of the dear 
expectant bride must be adroitly turned. How many misgivings she has before she can surrender this daughter, 
choicely reared, wholesome and delicate as a sea-bird in all her affinities, so tender and useful at home, to go and be 
the close companion of a "man" not knowing what it all will amount to. Not certain that he will be a true and 
provident husband, of pure and rational habits; — he may come with wine and tobacco and nauseate her luxuriously 
clean and comfortable household, fuming her apparel, endangering her food, disordering the brains of her children, 
or he may come home with such talk as they have in the forecastle. — Oh ho! some may laugh at the old lady's 
fantasies. 

On the other hand, the mother of the bridegroom has her weakness. Shall her darling boy so scrupulously 
just and pure, bashful, modest and good, be allowed to go and marry a woman that she does not know "all about." 
Will the wife keep the castle when he is gone, take good care of all things at home, tend the children, look after the 
poultry, keep the cream and butter regular, make and mend, wash and bake, be tender and precious with him in all 
the intimacies and confidence of married life — all the unspeakably delicious sacraments of the marital state which 
can never be conspicuous. But scruples quickly vanish. The young couple go boldly forward, make the engage- 
ment, summon the company, order the feast, pay the minister, have a good time and are Married. And if the old 
minister does not forget to set the record down in his almanac and send it to the town clerk, a great many years after, 

the genealogist goes to the book and finds " By Rev. Mr. , Mr. and Miss , the day of , 

16**."

146 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



NEW -JERSEY LINE. 



This department of the work is the result of such correspondence as has been for- 
warded. The earliest, No. 40, April 16, 1861, from Miss Hetty Hunt of Princeton, 
forms the basis of authority from which we proceed. The excellent writer passed 
from earth to the immortal state last February, accepting with joy the promised rest 
with the Saviour in heaven. The cold gloom of the season of her departure was 
richly brightened by the most glorious hopes of futurity. 

" The storm that wrecked the wintry sky 
No more disturbed her sweet repose 
Than summer evening's latest sigh 
That shuts the rose." 

The cherished letter that we first get makes known that John Hunt emigrated 
from Devonshire, Eng., to New York ; then settled in New Jersey. He married an 
aunt of the first Bishop Moor. The tables of pedigree duly show the process of the 
generations forward. The coat of arms is extant; and a copy, nicely made, was 
enclosed to us. The figure of a mastiff chained surmounts the shield, which has three 
mastiffs' heads. A more close description we may yet give. The motto is, " Faithful 
to the end," — worth fields of emblazonment. 

This line of family, it will be seen, has spread to Alabama, Kentucky, and North 
Carolina ; some to Huntsville, Mo. 

Next letter, No. 231, written by Rev. Benjamin Hunt from Michigan, Dec. 11, 
1861, supplies one uncertain branch of family. 

Next, 242, Dec. 19, 1861, from Perry, N.Y., furnishes a branch of John Hunt's 
posterity. Writer is Rev. Sanford Hunt, member of Methodist General Conference 
of Preachers. 

Next, 281, from Westly P. Hunt, adds to the descent of the main line essen- 
tially. 

Letters 345, 3T4, 386, from Miss Sue E. Hunt, grand-niece of Miss Hetty Hunt, 
display the high interest in our object, so grateful to us to perceive ; and the beautiful 



NEW-JERSEY LINE. 147 



handwriting of her epistles, and elaborate style of the communications, bear testimony 
to the graceful intellectual culture of the writer, and a character of superior loveliness. 
On her has the mantle of her endeared relative fallen worthily. 

We cannot allege a great degree of completeness to this line. So far from being 
full is it, that were it not for being so well provided by letters of interest on the main 
outline of the construction, and comprehending in its lineage the ever-lamented Capt. 
William Hunt, mysteriously lost in the ill-fated " Levant," the degree of promi- 
nence we give would perhaps not be accorded to our limited offering for this impor- 
tant line ; and yet we could not feel satisfied in placing the New-Jersey Line among 
our miscellaneous. And thus we submit the best we can supply ; knowing that, 
although it is only proportional, it is exceeding careful and good, all that we do 
offer. 



New Jersey was settled by the Danes in 1624. Colonies of Swedes and Fins 
came in 1627. The English arrived in 1640, but were soon displaced by the Swedes 
and Dutch. In 1655, the Dutch obtained the ascendency. In 1664, supremacy was 
acquired by the English. In 1676, reconquered by the Dutch, it was divided into 
East and West Jersey ; which were re-united, under the power of the English, in 
1702. ^ In 1738, a king's governor held sway. Ever memorable for the triumphant 
fields of Princeton, Monmouth, and Trenton, this territory shared greatly in the 
disasters and the glories of a protracted Eevolutionary struggle. Closely adjacent to 
Neiv York, the histories of both regions and characteristics of people are similar. 
Civilized culture is prevalent ; for religion has had its sway, in whatever peculiar 
forms have been most congenial to the good inhabitants of the domain, in the days 
that are past. It is the momentum of favorable and powerful beginnings that secures 
for the individual or people the mastery of the present hour.

EXCERPT A. 



Abraham Hunt was appointed postmaster of Trenton, under the Colonial Government; and, after the 
Declaration, was re-appointed by the postmaster-general, Benjamin Franklin. W. P. Hunt has both commissions 
in his possession. Mary K., daughter of John Hunt, Newtown, N. J., born Aug. 22, 1818; married Daniel Budd 
of Chester, N.J. Daniel Hunt of Hunterdon County, of late years had sons moved to near Lebanon, Ohio; 
and daughter, Mrs. Hanna, who had two sons, the eldest, Daniel Hanna, moved, in 1860, to Polo, 111. (Letter 1). 
Eev. Eobert C. Hunt, who writes to us Dec. 17, 1861 (No. 238), was native of Lansing, N.Y. Thomas Hunt, 
an inhabitant of Stillwater, N. J., was captured at his log-hut by a party of Indians, and taken to Canada, during 
the French War (cir. 1755), and, three years afterwards, was exchanged. He returned home, and lived to an 
advanced age. He had an elder brother, who was away at the time of capture, an officer of the Colonial troops 
(Barber's Hist. Coll. p. 479). 

The term " ob. single," which we use in the tables, signifies that the person "died either unmarried or 
without issue." 



NEW-YORK LINE. 15< 



NEW -YORK LINE. 



We take pleasure in being candid to our readers of these pages, in admitting, with not 
much reluctance, that here are records that we have not seen with our own vision, 
strongly and surely as we have brought to the investigation of some of the other 
departments of the labor. Bolton's " History of Westchester, N.Y.," is so admirable, 
however, as to make it needless indeed to visit those early haunts in hope of any 
thing now accessible. That affords us the main staple of the offering in this line. 
There is much other. An agreeable surprise was Miss Mary Ann Hunt's charming 
letter from West Farms, dated Feb. 13, 1862, and which is placed No. 292 in our 
richly burthened letter-file ; then another, March 24, good, though not as long as the 
first. She gathers for us from historic lore ; and our readers now shall enjoy and feel 
sure of the recital. 

Thomas Hunt was of Rye, N.Y., less than thirty miles north-east of the capital, 
as early as 1652. The revered tradition claims an ancestry for him direct from Tho- 
mas Hunt of Shropshire, Eng., who was a high-sheriff in 1656, and a colonel in the 
Parliamentary service. Loyal, honorable, and, with the remembrance of after-ages 
to follow, passing to his final reward in the year 1669. Farther remote, the dimmer 
and quite uncertain light upon the genealogical track indicates Richard Hunt of 
Shrewsbury, a bailiff, &c, of good honors and renown, to be in the high line of parent- 
age to our American pioneer. So impracticable to be duly certified of the truth 
thereof, we are not willing to accept the tradition as a verity at this point. We have a 
grounded descent from Thomas Hunt of Rye unquestionable. He bought, in 1652, 
a liberal quantity of land at Throckmorton's Neck; and, many years after, the Grove 
Farm was confirmed to him by the Governor's patent. Hunt's Point he was possessed 
of in 1686. 

His domestic life was cheered by an alliance in marriage with Elizabeth, the 
accomplished daughter of Edward Jessop, who was opulent ; and, by his generous 
will, half of the lands called West Farms came to this family. The name has not 
been lost in all the mutability of time. He closed his earthly probation a few days 
following Oct. 6, 1694, — the day he made his last will and testament.

154 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 

Edward, a brother of Thomas Hunt, is told of in another chronicle. 

Thomas Hunt the younger, the son of Thomas Hunt, duly accomplished a length 
of years. The society of his affectionate consort Elizabeth, who was related to Lord 
Gardiner's family of England, was continued to him until 1724 ; when, at the mature 
age of fifty-nine, she was called to the joy of rest. The good and faithful book of 
Mr. Bolton tells the record of her burial-place ; and also the inscription of her hus- 
band, who followed her Oct. 25, 1739, aged seventy-three. 

Thomas Hunt, his son, outlived his father only ten years. Sarah Ward was his 
happy choice in the conjugal relation. 

His son Thomas, born 1727, was attached to the army of the Revolution, and a 
personal friend of Gen. Washington ; and at the Point occurred more or less incident 
connected with the Commander-in-chief in the story of those days. 

The old house, now a hundred and seventy-one years old, was bombarded by the 
British. A ball passed through the shutter, and lodged in the chimney. After 
removing to Duchess County, Mrs. Hunt did not long survive. She left twelve chil- 
dren. Her sister, the Widow Drake, being left with three children (one of whom 
became father of Joseph Rodman Drake, Esq.), consented to smooth the declining 
path in life of the venerable man ; and they were united in the holy state of matri- 
mony. A life of eighty years crowned his head with honor. He was temperate, 
just, patient, and brave, so his gravestone lovingly records. Thomas, his son, left two 
daughters. Joseph, the next, had four sons and one daughter (whose valued corre- 
spondence aids the facts of this sketch). The eldest of the four, Thomas Hunt, left 
four sons, — Thomas (a captain in the public service), Joseph, James, and Hugh. 

James B., second of Joseph's sons, left two sons, — Charles J. and Joseph. 

Capt. Thomas has a son of four years old, the gem that tips this chain of pedi- 
gree ; and who, when two hundred years have rolled away, will perhaps be as 
reverenced as is now the ancestor of the two hundred years past. 

Augustine Hunt forms the ancestry of Hunts who are in New Jersey, &c. Rev. 
Holloway Whitfield Hunt informs us, under date of Dec. 24, 1861, from Schooley's 
Mount, that his grandfather lived in Wyoming Valley ; bought thirty thousand acres 
of " Election Land " (so called), along the flats of Tunkannock Creek, a branch of the 
Susquehanna. Being persecuted by the Indians, he retired to Orange County, 1ST. J., — 
his final residence. 

A proficient in the arts and science, conversant in medicine and theology, he 
became, to an extent, the instructor of his son Holloway, whose ambition was aroused 
to become eminent in life. The grandmother, deeply imbued with faith and prayer, 
instilled in the impressible heart of her dear son the noble principles of religion. 
Early leaving the patriarchal home, he crossed into New Jersey, the region of schools 
and colleges ; a modest youth, with one silver dollar and a plain suit of clothes, all he 



NEW -YORE LINE. 155 



possessed : but with a heart strong in reliance upon God, with aims noble, and trust 
implicit, his course was soon rapid and successful. 

At the age of twenty-six, he was called to the pastorate of the Presbyterian 
Church in Newton, 1ST. J. Spending seven years there, he succeeded Rev. John Hanna 
in charge of the churches of Bethlehem and Kingwood, Hunterdon County. During 
a long and prosperous life, he there ministered to a people who loved and esteemed 
him. 

A man of comely presence, of full height, of dignity and courteous address, and 
voice melodious with tones like trumpet and flute combined, he was indeed a marked 
man, and peculiarly favored in the pleasant estimation of all who knew him. He 
closed his life, A.D. 1858, in good old age, rich in faith, and unblemished in name. 
His son graduated at Princeton, 1794. Educated well his sons, and left them a com- 
petent estate, with his blessing, prized far beyond. 

Holloway W., David, and H. W., 2d, cousins, were students and graduates 
together at. Princeton in 1818. 

In 1826, Eev. H. W. Hunt, who writes to us, selected Schooley's Mount — a 
high, fruitful, and beautiful table-land in Morris County, N. J. — as his home ; where 
he was united to his beloved consort, Miss Amanda Hann, in 1849, heiress of Law- 
rence Hann, Esq., a highly respected German gentleman of wealth. 

Dr. W. A. A. and Dr. E. M. Hunt's courteous letters exhibit the collateral rela- 
tives of the above. 

Dr. Samuel M. Hunt writes us from Killawog, N.Y., March 26 and April 30, 
1862. The recollections of his mother, now ninety-two years old, affirm Japheth 
Hunt, his grandfather, to be as remote as definite knowledge affords of his ancestry. 
He lived in Nobletown, N.Y., a great many years, in the practice of medicine, near 
Spencertown and Hillsdale, and what is now Austerlitz, Columbia County, N.Y. He 
had a nephew, Pelatiah Hunt, and two brothers, quite wealthy, residing at no great 
distance. Another nephew, John Hunt, kept tavern at a place called Huntsville, ten 
miles above Unaclilla, on the Susquehanna Eiver. 

Hansom, son of John, has been a member of the Legislature, and rather aa influ- 
ential politician. 

Dr. Hunt mentions a tradition, in this particular branch, of " three brothers " 
having early come from England or Wales. It appears to us that we have elsewhere 
heard of a similar tradition ; and it is, no doubt, worthy of allusion. There are known 
cases of four or more brothers coming over, and some sisters. 

Dr. Japheth was a surgeon in the army ; and, it is added, probably was first from 
Berkshire County, Mass. What now follows of Dr. John W. Hunt will have a touch- 
ing interest for all who bear the name to which he was a distinguished ornament and 
honor. 



156 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



EULOGIES ON DR. J. W. HUNT. 

State Historical Society, special meeting, in Executive Committee, Tuesday even- 
ing, Dec. 20, 1859, George P. Delaplaine, Esq., presiding ; Prof. Ezra S. Carr, of the 
State University, rose and said, — 

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Historical Society, — I have been re- 
quested to make a few remarks concerning the life and public services of one who has been 
called, in the prime of manhood, to exchange life, usefulness, the charms of home, and 
household ties, for an early grave. I come, at your bidding, " to fling my pebble on his 
cairn ; " conscious tbat many of you who were wont to meet him at the stated gatherings of 
this society, many who were more familiar with his private and personal history, could do 
better justice to the subject and the occasion. 

Dr. John Warren Hunt was born in Upper Lisle, Broome County, N.Y., Feb. 28, 1826 ; 
and was the second son of Dr. Samuel M. Hunt of that place. I remember him first as a 
bright, intelligent lad of fourteen, greatly interested in the geological explorations then progress- 
ing in his native town. He assisted me in collecting some of the fossils now in the cabinets 
of the State University and the Geological Hall at Albany, and accompanied me in my 
examinations of neighboring localities. Soon after this time, he entered Homer Academy, 
where he remained several years. Leaving the academy, he commenced the study of medi- 
cine, first with his father, and afterwards, under my instruction, at Castleton, Vt., where he 
distinguished himself among a large body of students for his rigid economy and abstemious- 
ness and close application. The peculiarities of his mind were apparent in his choice of 
studies ; the literature and science of the profession being more attractive to him than those 
specific studies which are essential as preparation for its practice. 

He left Vermont before completing his course, but subsequently received from Castleton 
Medical College the degree of Doctor of Medicine ; and I next heard of him in Wisconsin, 
where he arrived in June of 1849. He first settled in Delafield, where he experienced the 
anxieties and vicissitudes of a physician's life, and where some members of this society first 
knew and befriended him. Dependent upon his own exertions, and generous to a fault, but 
for the kindness of those friends, whose favors he delighted in acknowledging, he could not 
so soon have risen to a station of responsibility and usefulness. 

In January, 1851, he was appointed Assistant-Secretary of State by William A. 
Barstow, then Secretary ; removed to Madison, and, with the exception of a part of Col. 
Robinson's secretaryship, continued to serve in that capacity until January, 1857, — a period 
of five years. In this office he gained a knowledge of public affairs and public records which 
has become proverbial. 

During the first four years of his residence in our State, while the order of the Sons of 
Temperance was vigorous, Dr. Hunt was actively engaged in furthering its interests. He 
was their Grand Scribe, and, for a time, edited the " Old Oaken Bucket," — a neat quarto, 
which was the organ of the order. Upon the decline of popular interest in that organization* 



NEW- YORK LINE. 157 



Dr. Hunt became interested in Masonry, which he believed to contain all the advantages of 
associated effort in the cause of temperance, charity, and social brotherhood. Masonry 
attracted him by its imposing ceremonies and its historical associations. He was a diligent 
student of its literature, and revered it as the asylum of Democracy, in times when,. by means 
of mystic rites and symbols, architects and artisans hid their secrets of chemistry and metal- 
lurgy and natural philosophy from the eyes of popes and princes, who feared the spread of 
knowledge among the people. To him it was an inheritance from the age of chivalry, when 
men armed and battled for a rood of land in Palestine as now they would not for an empire. 
He knew that, by its aid, arts were protected, and the marvels of Gothic architecture given 
to the world. In common with all imaginative minds, he enjoyed those forms that seem to 
link the present with the past ; which make the symbolic " work" of the Masonic Lodge, as 
it Avere, commemorative of the operative work which built Strasburg Cathedral and the 
noblest edifices of Great Britain. 

Dr. Hunt was, for many years, one of the most active and prominent Masons in the 
State. He presided for a long time over the Hiram Lodge in this city, and for the past two 
years has been the Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin, Grand Secretary of 
the Grand Chapter, Grand Recorder of the Grand Council of Eoyal and Select Masters, 
Grand Recorder of the Grand Commandery of Knights Templars of Wisconsin, Commander 
of the Robert M'Coy Commandery at Madison ; and was, at the time of his death, High 
Priest of the Royal Arch Chapter in this city. 

To his zeal and industry in the discharge of all these offices, his Masonic brethren 
bear grateful testimony. He died at his post. The records of these various offices bear 
traces of his busy pen until within a few days of his death. Besides attending personally to 
an enormous correspondence and these records, he published, in the last two years, proceed- 
ings of nine different Masonic bodies with which he was connected ; making no less than 
seven hundred and forty-eight octavo pages. 

In those charities which are enjoined as the first of Masonic duties, in sympathy for the 
sick and afflicted, Dr. Hunt was never wanting. Many friends had he among the poor and 
lowly. He could not see a brute beast, much less a human creature, suffer, without pain. 
He gave lavishly, and without ostentation. 

As a justice of the peace in his ward, an officer of the Dane Cavalry, a member of 
the Hook and Ladder Company, and as deputy county-treasurer, he served the young city 
of his adoption. As a trustee of the Baptist Society, he labored for its prosperity, and gave 
cheerfully and liberally to the erection of its edifice, and support of its ministry. Formerly an 
officer of the Madison Institute, he contributed to it also, and lamented the suspension of its 
usefulness. 

The number of societies, having for their object benevolence and the public weal, to 
which Dr. Hunt belonged, and contributed from his moderate income, is a sufficient evidence 
that benevolence was a distinguishing trait in his character. 

For the past six years, he has been the recording secretary of this society. He has 
always been a steady contributor to its library, and in many ways has aided to advance its 
interests. One of his last acts was to send a large contribution of pamphlets, ancient alma- 
nacs, and other literary matters ; thus evincing his continued interest in it. 

He was himself a contributor to the literature of Wisconsin. His first publication was 



158 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



the " "Wisconsin Gazetteer," issued in 1853, — an octavo volume of two hundred and fifty-six 
pages, the first work of its kind published here, and still valuable as a book of reference. 
The next was the " Wisconsin Almanac and Annual Register," — a valuable statistical 
work of ninety-six pages, which had a general circulation, and was regarded as furnishing 
the most reliable information concei'ning the political and industrial condition of the State. 
During the same year, he visited Toronto, Montreal, and Quebec, on the occasion of the 
celebration of the Grand-Trunk Railway, and wrote for the "Argus and Democrat" a 
series of descriptive letters, over the signature of " Kewassa ; " and, the following year, 
another series from the Lake-Superior country, over the same signature. The latter origi- 
nally appeared in the " Milwaukie Wisconsin." 

Loving books, with them he furnished his modest dwelling. There you will find the 
most valuable geographical and statistical library in the State, with nearly every thing in 
standard literature, and much that is curious and rare. 

He loved art too, and a few copies of the best ideals embellished his home. Into that 
home, so changed and desolate, we will not enter, save to leave upon its threshold our 
memorial garland. As brother, husband, father, Ave know he is mourned there by bruised 
hearts. As a friend, many of us can bear Avitness to his unselfishness and fidelity. 

Industrious to the last, his physician and friends found him always among his papers 
and books, at work himself, or dictating to the willing hand Avhich divined his every Avish. 
They ahvays found the ready welcome, the cheerful word. 

He spoke of death as he would speak of a journey ; regretting it for the sake of his 
young and devoted wife ; of his child, who would never know a father's love ; but for himself 
willing that " God's Avill be done." On the 12th of December, 1859, just as the Avintry day 
was closing, he peacefully closed his eyes upon the scenes of earth and the faces of those he 
loved, and breathed out his life in one fareAvell sigh. 

" When frail nature can no more, 
Then the spirit strikes the hour; 
My servant Death, with solving rite, 
Pours finite into Infinite." 

Those very characteristics Avhich gave Masonry such a hold upon the imagination and 
heart of our friend inclined him toAvard those religious denominations which have an histori- 
cal association. He believed that, through the Established Church, from the glorious company 
of apostles and martyrs, an influence had descended, especially powerful for the regeneration 
and sanctification of men. Though he did not live to receive from the hands of the venera- 
ble bishop confirmation and communion, he died a Christian, in the hope and promise of a 
happy immortality, 

That Dr. Hunt was appreciated in the community which he had serA^ed in such various 
capacities was evidenced by the mournful throng which followed his remains to their last 
resting-place. High and Ioav, rich and poor, native and foreign born, mingled in that solemn 
procession. Beside the companion of his early youth, they laid him doAvn to his long slum- 
ber ; and over his dust Avere heard the voices of brothers in arms, speaking " rest to his 
ashes, and peace to his soul." 



NEW-YORK LINE. 159 



The Chair appointed Mr. Draper, Prof. Carr, and Judge Atwood, a Committee to 
report suitable resolutions ; who, through their chairman, submitted the following, the 
adoption of which was moved by Prof. Conover : — 

Resolved, That we have heard with deep regret the death of Dr. John W. Hunt, one of 
the corporate members of this society, for the past six years its recording secretary, and 
always prominent among its friends and contributors. 

Resolved, That, in the death of Dr. Hunt, we feel sensibly the loss of an earnest 
co-worker in the field of historical and statistical research and collection, and a friend of his 
race, whose varied sphere of usefulness in society will long remain unoccupied ; and that we 
tender to his bereaved family our heartfelt sympathies and condolence. 

Resolved, That in respect for the memory of our late lamented associate, Dr. Hunt, the 
society do now adjourn ; and that the secretary be directed to furnish a copy of these pro- 
ceedings to the family of the deceased. 

Judge Atwood then rose, and made extended and eloquent remarks, less specific, 
but of great beauty and force. 

The resolutions as reported were then unanimously adopted ; after which, on 
motion of S. V. Shipman, Esq., copies of the eulogies just delivered were requested 
for the archives of the society. — Adjourned.

GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



NEW-YORK LINE. 



Richard Hunt of Shrewsbury, Eng., was a bai- 
liff, &c. Tradition dimly points to him as the 
ancestor of this line. 



Thomas Hunt of Westchester, N.Y. 

ClCELEY PASLEY. 



Thomas.* 5 



Emigrated from England in Cromwell's time. In 
principles, a High Churchman. "Was early at 
Stamford, Connecticut Colony, and at Rye, 
N.Y. Freeman, 1663. Representative, Oc- 
tober, 1664. Was at Middelburg (changed 
to Newtown), Long Island, 1661. Named 
in Plymouth-Colony Records, printed, vol x. 
47. At Westchester early as 1665, when 
Thomas and Thomas Hunt, jun., signed a 
document. At court, 1665, vs. Pomoquecee, 
Indian, in an action for taking a canoe. In 
1670, he accused (in behalf of the town) Har- 
ryson, a witch, who was eventually ordered off. 
The mere shreds that we get suffice not much 
more than for identity of his name. He was 
probably one of the most valuable men in the 
Colony. The very best intelligence of him has 
no doubt decayed and gone. 



Ralph Hunt of Newtown (L.I.), N.Y.

of the town. In 1663, was, with other leading 



men, denounced for resisting Dutch authority, 
aiding to form a junction with the Connecticut 
Colony. In February, 1663-4, was chosen, 
with six others, " in the name of his majesty, 
Charles II.," to town-office in Hastings ( the 
new name of Middelburg) for the ensuing year. 
In 1664, admitted as freeman of the Colony of 
Connecticut. Was chosen surveyor to view the

name of Hastings) by Gov. Nicoll. November, 
1666, to April, 1668, town-overseer. Dec. 4, 
1666, was a freeholder of Newtown, named in 
a list. In 1666, was overseer of Edward Jes- 
sop's will. Jan. 4, 1666-7, was one of eleven 
landholders who agreed to enclose their lands 
in a single field for cultivation. March 6, 
1666-7, after having been appointed by the 
town to get a draught of boundaries, he became 
one of the patentees of Newtowne, in the West 
Riding of Yorkshire, upon Long Island.

rates. April, 1670 to 1672, chosen town-over- 
seer. January, 1667-8, was chosen permanent 
surveyor. In 1671, the first church edifice in 
Newtown was erected on a gore of land appro- 
priated for the church by Ralph Hunt. The 
site is at the corner of the Main Street and 
Jamaica Road, — the " corner house," recently 
owned by Peter Duryea. Sept. 6, 1673, was 
sworn to office as schepen, or magistrate, upon

Dec. 27, 1678, of Lawrence, N. J. 



John Hunt came first to New York. Descend- 
ants are of the New-Jersey Line. He may sub- 
stantiate the tradition of ■" three brothers " 
coming over.

Eden,* 311 s. of Aaron Hunt. Was waylaid and 
mortally wounded by two British soldiers at 
the Cross-roads, near Boar-Hill Bridge, Yon- 
kers, 1776. Eden Hunt was quartermaster in 
the army. 

David. f During the presence of the British 
Army at Tarrytown, N.Y., about 1776, a large 
corps of troops were surprised at a tavern by 
Major David Hunt. He proceeded from West- 
chester with a few volunteers, arranging the 
march so as to arrive about dusk. After dark- 
ness had fairly set in, he surrounded the house 
with his party ; and, at this moment, the unsus- 
pecting enemies were engaged playing cards. 
Major Hunt, arming himself with a club, gave 
the signal of attack ; and the whole party- 
rushed simultaneously in, headed by the major, 
who exclaimed, as he raised his weapon, 
" Clubs are trumps, gentlemen ! " During the 
desperate struggle that ensued, John Archer 
attempted to kill several of the soldiers, and 
V'?.s nnly prevented by the majov, wht,, arrest- 
ing his arm, observed, " Sir, the highest sense 
of honor in a soldier is to protect the lives of 
his prisoners." After a short but ineffectual 
resistance, the enemy surrendered, and were 
led off in triumph to the American quarters. 

David Hunt was town-clerk of Yonkers in 1779. 
David Hunt owned sawmill in Westchester 
County, 1760 (Bolton, i. 487).

Crompond, twenty miles below West Point, was 
the rendezvous of a party of mounted volun- 
teers of the army in 1781. Out on an expedi- 
tion, one of them, Hunt, received a dangerous 
wound through his shoulder and lungs. The 
air escaped at every brent 1 ~ •. Eustis came 
to the lines ; dilated the wuun. _ ! the breast ; 
and as the patient was athletic, and had not 
sustained a very copious loss of blood, he 
recommended blood-letting. He eventually 
recovered by the free use of the lane, and 
such abstemious living as reduced him tc + he 
greatest extremity. 

Hunt's Bridge (put down on the map of W. 
Chester County) was commanded by the Hei- 
of Kingsbridge, fortified in 1776. T J 
destroyed ; and, after the battle of 
Plains, it was reconstructed by th 
There is a Hunt's-Bridge station r

Hunt's Point, situated at the south-east extremity 
of the Great Planting Neck, called by the 
Indians Quinnahung, in the village of West 
Farms. This property has been occupied by 
the Hunt Family near a hundred and twenty 
years. First derived by the Jessop alliance. 
In 1688, Thomas Hunt, of the Grove Farm, 
granted his son Thomas a hundred acres on 
south of Gabriel Leggett's land, bounded east- 
erly and southerly by Bronx River. It is now 
the property of Daniel Winship, who married 
Eliza, widow of Richard Hunt. The old 
grange, erected in 1688, occupies a beautiful 
situation near the extremity of the Point, over- 
looking the East River and Flushing Bay. 

Hunt's Hill was occupied by the American forces. 
Near Kingsbridge and the River Bronx. 

St. Peter's Church Burial-ground, in Westchester, 
contains memorials of the Hunts. 

Westchester County. —The freeholders loyal to the 
king and General Assembly assembled at White 
Plains, April 11, 1775, at a general meeting. 
The Loyalists, on the 13th, drew a protest 
against the action of the meeting. Among 
them appear John, Joshua, Enoch, John, Jr., 
Israel, Benjamin, Elnathan, James, John, 
and Phineas Hunt ; John Hunt added to the 
list. Col. Lewis Morris of Morrisiana, chair- 
man of the meeting, answered the protest with 
a list of names he declared to be non-voters, 
and many under age; among them, John, 
John, Jun., Joshua, James, and Israel 
Hunt. Notwithstanding the protest, deputies

were chosen to the Provincial Congress, which 
adjourned from New York to White Plains ; 
and there, on the 9th July, 1776, the Declara- 
tion of Independence was received and read in 
front of the court-house. 

Winter-Hill Burying-ground contains precious 
memorials of the Hunt name. 

Arms. — Per pale, argent and sable a saltier ; 
counterchanged. Crest, a lion's head erased, 
per pale, argent and sable, collared gules, lined 
and ringed or. 

We cannot make the above arms intelligible ; but 
we shall see, by a schedule of various coats, 
where the ^scribed arms are found on 

the herald .. uu uks located. 

References. — Bolton's " Westchester " is so 
thor r aghly used, that a list of the pages would 
be jultitudinous. Thanks to the author of 
4 is great work. James Piker, jun.'s, splendid 
Annals of Newtown," New York, 1852, pp. 
±37, has been exhausted of every mention of 
">ur name. 

vtion. — The signs used to avoid the 
*.y of figures signify, *, " first ; " t> " se- 
" third;" §, "fourth;" ||, "fifth;" 
,, sixth." Thus v« contrive to give for the 
name that begins a column, as in the fifth 
group, the number containing one (21), and car- 
ry along throughout the consecutive increase 
(always adding for some surplus which we do 
not get) ; getting to the midst, for instance, 
at 233, is Ward, the third of the group, but 
the second son (|). The sign indicates the 
order of the sons, yet it is only used when the 
name goes forward to make a new family ; 
using a figure with the sign only once in any 
one group. Smaller groups we sometimes 
commence with the half-decimal 5, so as to 
keep the consecutive number near true. In 
Miscellaneous (3), the signs are merely used to 
signify successive persons of same name. 



Miscellaneous (3). 

A schedule of residents of New-York City, of 
the name of Hunt, not including those defi- 
nitely given in the pedigrees ; derived from 
various directories conveniently accessible. 
The signs *, f, J, &c, indicate successive per- 
sons of the same name. Occupation, date, 
and frequently the locality of residence or 
business, is added.

NORTHAMPTON LINE. 175 



THE NORTHAMPTON LINE. 



Proceeding thus far, and now in the midst of the acute and diligent labor of separat- 
ing and arranging multitudes of desultory pedigrees and those more compact, it is a 
congratulation that we are thus far forward favorably. Figuratively it may seem that 
"getting into print " is like embarking on a passage to sea : and now in the middle of 
our voyage, we feel that we are in deep water — many fathoms beyond soundings. 
Our " lines " have been cast in pleasant places, amid goodly heritages. The scouroino- 
anxieties and solicitudes that we should get right on important bearings are all dissi- 
pated, and we now move serene and confident in onward progress. The early omens 
of our beginnings, like the last land birds at the mast-head, are now all inland and 
invisible. Our flag flies high and unchallenged. There are no " cruisers " in our seas. 
Cloudless skies front our vision and shine from above ; and no speck of disaster or 
rivalry is in our whole horizon. Gales steady and prosperous speed us. 

This Northampton Genealogy may be termed the Regal Line; very distinguished 
as it has been for wealth, learning and political power. The baton of gubernatorial 
authority, honorable as the olden sceptre of Judah, has been intrusted to this tribe 
in three instances ; being the only cases of such advancement that we can record in 
the family history. Alabama, for an early territorial Governor, enjoyed the appointed 
administration of Seth Hunt, a man of shining ability. New York, the " Empire 
State" — larger than many European kingdoms, requiring almost superhuman energy 
of management, gave a majority of her popular vote to Washington Hunt for one 
official term as chief magistrate. Vermont, close adjacent to New York, with less 
territory and population, but with people no less intelligent and discriminating, elected 
Jonathan Hunt Lieutenant-Governor of the State. 

Also, it will be seen that from this stock we get several representatives to Con- 
gress, honorable and fair men as have been produced for that body. Method of the 
genealogy is similar to others.

plentiful data from the superb book of Hon. 
James Savage ; which we dare not commend, 
for fear of coming short of his due meed of

Mrs. Hannah Cleveland, a native of Northampton, 
died at Skeneateles, Onondaga County, N.Y., 
June 14, 1861, at the remarkable age of a hun- 
dred and four years and seven months. She 
was the daughter of Jacob Parsons. Her 
mother was a Hunt, and sister of the late 
Deacon Ebenezer Hunt of this town. Her pa- 
rents had seven daughters, whose names were 
Esther, Beulah, Priscilla, Eunice, Hannah, 
Thankful, and Mercy. One attained the age 
of ninety-nine, another ninety-eight, and an- 
other over ninety years. President Dwight, 
who presided over Yale College twenty-one 
years, was her playmate; and the late Gov. 
Caleb Strong, her neighbor. The latter, Mho 
was only a few years her senior, died at the 
ripe age of seventy-five, forty-two years ago. 
Mrs. Cleveland was married, in 1781, to Nehe- 
miah Cleveland, and was the mother of twelve 
children, — eight of whom are still living. 
There are also thirty-nine grandchildren, and 
more than forty great-grandchildren. Her 
husband died in 1843, having lived with her 
sixty-two years. The preservation of her men- 
tal and physical faculties was unusual and 
wonderful. She delighted in the quotation of 
biblical precepts to a period of only a few 
weeks previous to her death. The following, 
which she recited a few weeks since, was an 
auspicious favorite ; revealing, with rare felicity, 
the sequel of her long and illustrious life : 
" Trust in the Lord, and do good ; so shalt 
thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be 
fed." She was buried on Sunday, the 16th, 
with honors appropriate to her remarkable lon- 
gevity and eminently religious life.

Capt. Hunt was a most substantial man. His 
career will be judged by the notices, on another 
page, of his business transactions in landed 
property. Father of Gov. Jonathan Hunt. A 
horizontal monument bears this inscription : — 

(atoffel.) 

{Hour-glass.) (Bead.) (Coffin.) 

" In memory of Capt. Samuel Hunt, who died 
ve(r)y suddenly of an apoplectick fit, Feb. 28th, 
A.D. 1770, in the 67th year of his age. 

" Trust not in uncertain riches, 
But in the living God. 

My children, Friends, spectators, all who view 
This marble stone, this motto learn tis true: 
Health, Wealth & Honours all are empty things, 
They fly with quicker speed than Eagles wings; 
Death, sudden Death the Bubble quickly bu(r)sts, 
And sinks the owner instantly in dust. 
Th' industrious frugal hand its actions cease, 
The cautious watchful eye is cl(o)sed in Peace. 
Here sleeps my Body never more to wake 
Till Christ shall come and it to Glory take." 



Mrs. Hunt was daughter of John and Esther 
Ellsworth of Windsor, Conn. ; b. Apr. 27, 1705. 
Near the monument, as above, is an upright 
white marble, as follows : — 

" Madam Anna Hunt

" To rise again the sun goes down 
And in the furrows grain is sown 
Beauties that sleep through Winter's reign 
When Spring returns revive again. 
Shall then the friend oer whom we mourn 
Never again to Life return 
Let no such thought our hope destroy 
Our lively hope that some time hence 
Thro the Redeemer's influence 
On whom she placed her hope & trust, 
She'll burst this tomb shake off her Dust, 
Ascend to where God holds his throne 
And immortality put on."

was on a committee, in 1780, to consider the 
union of New York and Vermont; went with a 
message to Gov. Clinton at Philadelphia, con- 
cerning the difficulty with New York ; made an 
affidavit, which was read in Congress in 1780; 
was one of the seventy-six claimants to lands 
in Vermont which had been ceded to New 
York, and received $948.23 of the $30,000 
awarded ; was sheriff of Windham County, 
and served an execution on Timothy Church of 
Brattleborough, who resisted, and was rescued 
Aug. 8, 1782 ; and petitioned Government con- 
cerning the release of the famous Major Shat- 
tuck ; was an associate censor, in 1786, to 
revise the Constitution, &c. 



Obituary of Gov. Hunt. 
Died at Vernon, Vt., on the 1st instant, the Hon. 
Jonathan Hunt, Esq., in the eighty-fifth year 
of his age, — one of the first settlers of North- 
field, Mass. In early life, he shared in the 
fatigues and anxieties incident to the perilous 
state of those who plant themselves in the wil- 
derness, liable to privations and the depreda- 
tions of savages. Persevering industry, strict 



integrity, laudable ambition, and well-deserved 
promotion to many honorable offices, civil and 
military, to that of lieutenant-governor of the 
State, rendered him a distinguished character 
during the struggles of the New-Hampshire 
grantees and the New-York claimants during 
the Revolutionary War, the formation of this 
State, its union with the United States, and the 
foundation of our State government. Although 
his advanced age was subject to severe pains 
and many infirmities, yet his mind ever ap- 
peared remarkably strong, his perceptions clear, 
and judgment correct. The principles and 
practice of industry, virtue, and religion, he 
greatly respected and encouraged, and the mi- 
nistry of the gospel he liberally supported ; 
and, while his hospitality and kindness to the 
deserving were extensively exercised, indolence 
and vice found in him an open and uniform 
reprover. He preserved through his long life, 
and amidst his temporal prosperity, the most 
unassuming and unaffected deportment, and, 
what is always highly honorable in the rich as 
well the poor, the reputation of an honest man.

Obituary of Mrs. L. Hunt. 

"At Vernon, on the 29th June, 1834, Mrs. Levi- 
nah Hunt, widow of the late Gov. Hunt, aged 
eighty-five years. Mrs. Hunt possessed supe- 
rior intelligence, with interesting suavity of 
manners. In prosperity she never appeared 
elated, nor on afflictive scenes unduly depressed. 
She uniformly manifested sincere piety, amia- 
ble, deep-rooted, and reasonable ; well qualify- 
ing her for the pleasing society of persons of 
congenial principles and acquirements. Yet, to 
her, ' sweet home ' was always the centre of 
temporal happiness. Though her bodily health 
has long been tender and delicate, yet with a 
life devoted to industry and economy, and with 
a heart overflowing with charity and benevo- 
lence, that happiness was diffused around her 
in the performance and superintendence of all 
the social and domestic duties of life, extend- 
ing even to the humblest being within the 
sphere of her influence. She was deservedly 
beloved by all. Many affectionate friends will 
long remember the order and regularity which 
ever pervaded every thing pertaining to her 
hospitable mansion. To the sick and unfortu- 
nate, and especially to the neighboring poor, 
such were her numerous expressions of kind- 
ness and generosity, that she may truly be 
considered as carrying to the grave with her 
their blessing and their gratitude, mingling 
with their lamentations. As she never made 
an enemy while living, her memory will always

remain sacred in the hearts of all who knew 
her. As a wife, a mother, a friend, a neighbor, 
a Christian, she was a pattern worthy of all 
commendation, and the imitation of all; ever 
exhibiting an excellent illustrative of the happy 
effects, even in this life, of that gospel which 
she early embraced, and ever followed as her 
religious creed, as her only rule of faith and 
practice. A faithful retrospect of her life, 
confirmed by her patience and calm sub- 
mission during her last sickness, and her 
peaceful death, are subjects calculated to afford 
the most consoling evidence to her amiable 
daughters, who witnessed the closing scenes, to 
her aged and absent brothers, and her other 
surviving relatives and friends, that her disso- 
lution is only a removal from this imperfect 
state of probation to that superior world of 
spirits, where she partakes, in full fruition, 
of those inconceivable entertainments which 
are prepared for all who love God, and follow 
the gospel of his dear Son.

The Charms of Virtue Imperishable. 

BY HENRY MOORE. 

All earthly charms how dear, 
Howe'er they please the eye or ear, 

Will quickly fade and fly. 
Of earthly glory, faint the blaze; 
And soon the transitory rays 

In endless darkness die. 

The noble beauties of the just 
Shall never moulder in the dust, 

Or know a sad decay: 
Their honors, time anil death defy; 
And, round the throne of Heaven on high, 

Beam everlasting day.

It would be difficult to do an exact measure of 
justice in a proper mention of the . character 
of Gen. Hunt. The youngest of FOUR bro- 
thers, all men of altitude and force, superior 
for business, and taking a prominent hold on 
all matters uppermost to the attention of lead- 
ing men in a new region of settlements, the 
general was as prosperous and distinguished 
in his separate interests as any one at this day 
would be glad to find matter of record. We 
have some veneration for such men, as of an 
age gone by. They seem ponderous and almost 
impracticable to us. We, merely standing at 
the desk, with a pen in hand, feel diminutive, 
and as if we ought, rather than attempt to ba- 
lance such men in our ounce scales, construct a 
solid platform, and adopt a broad standard of 
avoirdupois weight, to ascertain their due pre- 
ponderance in the scale of civil, social, and 
political life. Two of the brothers were joint 
in frequent transactions in lands : and a great 
many separate conveyances show r that they 
were variously active in purchasing territory, 
thus accommodating those who wanted money, 



184 



GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



and, at the same time, supplying suitable farms 
for new settlers ; gradually accelerating the 
growth of the southern part of Vermont to 
what it has now become. They were ready 
to loan money, and hold remote lands as secu- 
rity ; and sometimes be willing to consider the 
same as a purchase, when the apparent advan- 
tage of the borrower so inclined. The enhanced 
value of five thousand acres of land in Albany, 
Vt., which the general donated to Middlebury 
College, has proved a substantial testimonial of 
his wisdom and liberality. Gen. Hunt was 
courier from a convention in Vermont to the 
General Assembly at New York in 1775. He 
was a delegate from Hinsdale to a convocation 
called at Westminster in June, 1776 (Hall's 
Eastern Vermont, 1858, pp. 799, pages 226, 
257). We might trace the progress of the 
brothers into eminence in political life : but we 
see evidence that their prosperity was in landed 
and living interests ; and what more by common- 
sense people could be wished ? It is sufficient 
that a nomination was to be made for lieutenant- 
governor of the State ; and we know not why 
either of these mutually reliant brethren might 
not have been selected. The strength of one 
was that of the whole. The second brother 
was the fortunate candidate ; and they all sus- 
tained him with their sympathy, when in that 
arduous and honored position. 
The general resisted the allurements of married 
life; and, totally engrossed with the cares of 
business, as near as we learn, was contented to 
go, unfruitful in posterity, to the peaceful 
repose of the tomb, in an honorable old age. 
The inscription at his grave, in Vernon, Vt., on 
the side of the beautiful Connecticut River 
opposite from Hinsdale, where he lived, was 
copied for us, July 9, 1861 : — 
" Gen. Arad Hunt 
died 
Feb. 18, 1825, 
Ae. 82." 



John, 81 Rev., of Boston, s. of John. 28 1744. 
The Rev. John Hunt, A.M., pastor of the Old 
South Church in Boston, died 30th December, 
A.D. 1775, aged thirty-one years. As orator, 
scholar, and divine, he gave bright presages of 
future eminence ; and his brief but exemplary 
life he devoted to the good of his fellow-men, 
until he was summoned to higher services. 

Bv consent of his friends in Northampton, where 
' he drew his first and last breath, the church and 
congregation in Boston, who ordained him 
25th September, A.D. 1771, and whose orna- 
ment he shone until death, have raised this 
memorial of his worth ; his more lasting praise 
being in heaven, to shine as the stars for ever 
and ever. 



Note. — The foregoing inscription was written by 
a distinguished character in Boston, at the re- 
quest of the deacons of the Old South. The 
monument from which it is taken was pre- 
pared at Hartford, and sent to Northampton, 
1811, — thirty-six years after the death of Mr. 
Hunt. The Revolutionary War prevented 
Mr. Hunt's people from showing this tribute of 
respect to his memory at the usual time. 

In a sermon, delivered at the funeral of Mr. Hunt, 
from Job xiv. 19, by the Rev. John Hooker of 
Northampton, the following paragraphs oc- 
cur: — 

"His public services, as long as he lived, every- 
where met with singular approbation. He was 
truly a workman that needed not to be ashamed. 
In prayer he was peculiarly copious, grave, and 
solemn, with an unusual variety and pertinency 
of sentiment and language; and perhaps in 
no part of public exercise did he more excel 
than in this. As a preacher, he was eminent. 
His compositions were correct, manly, and 
elegant. His sermons were rational, judicious, 
and instructive ; enriched with striking and 
important sentiments ; adorned with a variety 
and noble turns of thought ; enlivened by a 
strong, animated, and delicate style ; recom- 
mended by a delivery remarkably grave, deli- 
berate, and emphatical, with a pathos and 
energy becoming the pulpit, and calculated to 
give every idea he meant to convey its full 
weight upon the mind. 

" He loved and he preached the peculiar doctrines 
of the gospel as they were understood by the 
fathers of his country, but with a most agreea- 
ble openness and candor of mind. The doctrine 
of redemption, through a Mediator and atoning 
sacrifice, he was particularly attached to, and 
dwelt much upon it in the course of his life ; 
and it was the hope and comfort of his heart 
in death." 

Sprague's "Annals," i. 686, is more diffuse in 
mention of the good man.

Obituary of Hon. Jonathan Hunt. 

House of Representatives. Mr. Everett, of Ver- 
mont, rose, and addressed the House as fol- 
lows : — 

" Mr. Speaker, — It has become my painful duty, 
on behalf of my colleagues, to announce to this 
House the death of one of their number, — the 
Hon. Jonathan Hunt. On this occasion I may 
be permitted to say, that he has long been a 
member of this House, and that the talents and 
assiduity with which he executed his duties in 
this place were alike honorable to himself, to 
this House, and to his constituents. I have 
known him long ; I have known him well : and 
a purer spirit never inhabited mortality. His 
place in this House may indeed be filled ; but 
the void in the affections of his family and 
friends can never be filled." 

Mr. Everett then submitted the following resolu- 
tion : — 

"Resolved, That the members of this house will 
testify their respect for the memory of Jonathan 
Hunt, deceased, late a member of this House 
from the State of Vermont, by wearing crape 
on the left arm for the remainder of the present 
session of Congress." 

A resolution was subsequently adopted, by which 
Messrs. H. Everett, Choon, Slade, E. Everett, 
Taylcr, Choate, and Candish, Avere appointed 
to superintend the ceremonies at the funeral ; 
which should be attended on Wednesday by 
the Speaker, officers, and members, according 
to usage. 

The House then adjourned to Thursday.

GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



DEATH OF MR. HUNT. 

The news of the death of the Hon. Jonathan 
Hunt, which took place in Washington City on 
the morning of the 15th inst., will probably 
have been generally disseminated among our 
readers ere the reception of this paper. By 
this sudden and unlooked-for event, the State 
has been deprived of an able and faithful repre- 
sentative in the National Legislature, and our 
community of a member who was very gene- 
rally and very highly esteemed in all the rela- 
tions of social life. We speak to those who 
knew him well when we say, that the character 
of Mr. Hunt, for professional uprightness, 
political independence, and unsullied integrity 
in his private affairs, was not surpassed by that 
of any man in the community. Attended from 
early youth by all the allurements which wealth 
can furnish, few men have arrived at the meri- 
dian of life through a course of more uniform 
industry and perseverance, or have used with 
greater moderation, and less attempt at show, 
the goods of Providence. Aged forty-two. 
Died May 15, 1832. (News of the day.)

Mrs. Hunt b. at Colerain, Mass. ; ob., a. 52, Sept. 
15,1846. First dau.m. , 1836, Gour- 

veneur Morris, Esq. ; and had Sarah L., 1843. 
Second dau. m. , 1837, Henry Sey- 

mour of Litchfield, Conn. No issue. Third 
dau. m. at Springfield, Feb. 10, 1841, George 
Seymour, M.D., of Litchfield. No issue. Mr. 
Hunt was an active man in business until his 
health declined, and for some years continued 
to give directions for conducting farm-afl'airs, 
&c. His former mansion buildings and 
grounds, now improved by Capt. John Hunt, 
make quite an aspect of a village, — a short 
distance from the depot, and exactly on the 
line of the Vermont and Massachusetts Rail- 
road. This place has been long famed for 
good cheer. Horned cattle by the drove, 
destined for the larders of the distant city, have 
found their bountiful feed on the luxurious 
meadows ; and the antique domicile (shaded by 



the enormous tree), romantic as well as com- 
fortable, has always been welcome with solid

Obituary of Arad Hunt. 

Died at Vernon, Vt., Aug. 30, Arad Hunt, Esq., 
aged forty-three. Although our deceased friend 
was born to those flattering expectations upon 
which are usually founded sanguine hopes of 
happiness, it was not his fortune to realize, to 
any enviable extent, this grand object of human 
desire and pursuit. While in the first bloom of 
manhood, he was assailed by a disease which 
neither admitted of cure, nor scarcely the hope 
of mitigation. During the last eight or nine 
years of his life, he was confined almost exclu- 
sively to his bed ; suffering, from alternate dis- 
tress and lassitude, the slow exhaustion of an 
originally vigorous constitution. That he al- 
ways suffered with exemplary fortitude, or that 
in him patience had its perfect work, even the 
tenderness of friendship will not affirm. It 
should be remembered, however, that his were 
trials of no ordinary kind, either in respect to 
their severity or duration ; and that there is 
scarcely a more difficult attainment in life, or a 
spectacle more worthy of admiration, than that 
of a mind naturally ardent, and eminently fitted 
for the active pursuits of life, which cannot 
only contemplate, with unbroken equanimity, 
the wrecks of its dearest and fairest hopes, but 
also endure, with unruffled serenity and cheer- 
fulness, the daily and nightly anguish of a 
protracted and hopeless malady. He possessed 
intellectual powers, which, if developed under 
happy auspices, would probably have led to 
distinction in any congenial walks of life. A 
love of books solaced the more tranquil hours 
of his confinement. His reading was various ; 
and, in some departments of knowledge, his 
information was uncommonly extensive and 
accurate. Although some of the leading cir- 
cumstances of his early life were not altogether 
propitious to a well-balanced character, he pos- 
sessed many moral endowments, a high sense 
of honor, a scrupulous love of truth and justice ; 
and free candor and stability were among the 
primary elements, and indeed formed the basis, 
of his character. With a hand munificent, and 
a heart susceptible of the warmest friendship,

he held every past kindness and service in 
grateful remembrance. In the education and 
welfare of his family, his abundant means were 
liberally and judiciously dispensed. On the 
whole, the composition of his moral character was 
more remarkable for strength than symmetry ; 
and the movement of his mind, for rapidity and 
energy than gentleness and equability. Life 
had long been a burthen to him ; and he con- 
templated the prospect of futurity, if not with 
cheerfulness, yet without dismay.

Obituary. 

In this town, July 8, 1837, David Hunt, M.D. (the 
last of the family of the Hon. Ebenezer Hunt, 
M.D.), aged sixty-four. 

Dr. Hunt was very generally known in these 
counties, and will be remembered and lamented 



by many attached friends for his pleasant so- 
ciality, and for his care and kindness as a 
medical man. 

For many years, much of his time was given to 
the study of geology and mineralogy ; and at 
one time he possessed, without doubt, the best 
and most extensive private collection of speci- 
mens and minerals in New England. 

In the season of flowers, too, he amused himself 
in that most delightful recreation, the study of 
botany ; and was in extensive correspondence 
with the learned in these sciences, both at home 
and abroad. 

Dr. Hunt possessed an iron constitution, and had 
enjoyed uninterrupted health for more than 
twenty years, until within about three months, 
when it began to yield. From this time he 
gradually declined until his death. 

In view of this event, he requested a medical 
friend to make a critical post-mortem examina- 
tion. 

His remains were followed to the grave by a very 
numerous concourse of friends, after divine 
service. 



Mrs. Hunt ob. Sept. 25, 1838, a. 61. Dr. Hunt's 
estate was, real, $18,460; personal, $1,658. 
First dau. pub. Feb. 2, 1828, Dr. Edwin Cook; 
and ob. at Wheatfield, N.Y., July 28, 1859, a. 
42. Next dau. m. about July , 1827, Dr. 
Daniel Thompson of Pelham. The other dau. 
m. Thomas M. Hunt (No. 394). 



Obituary. 

At Northampton, Mass., Aug. 24, 1838, at the 
residence of her mother, Miss Frances A. 
Hunt, daughter of the late Dr. David Hunt, 
aged twenty. 

The numerous friends in this city of this interest- 
ing young lady, among whom she spent almost 
the last six or eight months of her life, claim 
the privilege of mingling their sympathies with 
those of her " natal spot " who have so recently 
dropped the tear of sorrow over the clods of the 
valley where she lies. 

Suddenly has she passed from us ; but she has 
passed into the heavens of eternal glory, " to 
go no more out for ever." Yes : our friend was 
a Christian, early nurtured for the paradise 
above. The last autumn, she came on a visit 
to this city, gay, and thoughtless of eternal 
things ; and, for some months, mingled with the 
gay and fashionable in the frequent parties of 
the pleasure-seeking, where, from the natural 
buoyancy of her spirits, her cup of joy seemed 
ever full and overflowing. Yet the solemn 
caution, " Remember, for all these things, God 



NORTHAMPTON LINE. 



193 



will bring thee into judgment," at times gave 
her an anxious thought. Early in the revival 
with which we were recently blessed, through 
the faithfulness of her religious friends, she 
commenced, with great seriousness and delibe- 
ration, to contemplate the greatest of all ques- 
tions, " Am I prepared to meet my God ? " 
The conviction of the utter destitution of such 
preparedness seized her mind with such power, 
that she confessed the deepest solicitude to 
know what she must do to become reconciled 
to God. Nor did she hesitate or philosophize 
when directed to Him who is " the way and 
the life," but, with the simplicity of a little 
child, confessed her sins, acknowledged the 
justice of that law by which she felt herself 
condemned as a transgressor, and cast herself at 
the feet of her Saviour, " whose blood alone 
cleanseth from all sin," with entire faith in his 
ability to save her ; and, as his character as 
Mediator and Redeemer of his people became 
more fully understood, so greatly did she ad- 
mire and adore it, that she expressed a strong 
desire to become entirely consecrated to the 
service of Him who had done so much for her- 
self and a ruined world. To this end, she 
made the Bible her daily study, and such books 
as Baxter's "Saints' Rest" and the "Corner 
Stone " her daily reading ; and so ardent were 
her aspirations for holiness, that she reluctantly 
passed an hour in company, except when it 
might be spent in strictly religious conversation 
and spiritual improvement. Every hour not 
thus spent she regarded lost, and used to men- 
tion it with deep regret. She often remarked, 
that it was matter of great surprise to her, that, 
in their calls and social interviews, Christians 
said so little on the subject which is delightful 
above all others, as it is above all others im- 
portant. But now she mingles with a company 
in which there is no alloy ; and the fire of a 
Saviour's love, which had just kindled on the 
altar of her heart, now burns with a purer and 
holier flame, as she tunes her harp of gold to 
the sweet song of heaven.

Obituary. 

Died in Cambridge, June 9, 1835, Ebenezer Hunt, 
Esq., of this town, aged sixty. Mr. Hunt left 
town a few weeks since, with hope of recover- 
ing, in a measure, that health and strength 
which had been very much impaired by pro- 
tracted and painful illness, and which hitherto 
he had borne up against with great fortitude 
and resolution. But his constitution, no longer 
able to sustain these repeated attacks, yielded 
without further struggle to the decay of na- 
ture. 

Mr. Hunt was extensively known abroad, and 
highly respected and honored at home. The 
death of such men is of itself, without public 
comment, calculated to produce more than 
ordinary sensation in the minds of the commu- 
nity ; while the thousand social, fireside, and 
domestic ties that are severed by so painful an 
event are too sacred to be brought before the 
world. His memory will long be cherished by 
a large circle of friends.

children (vol. xl. 260, five pages). Dau. m.

" In Walpole, N.H., April 9, 1846, very suddenly, 
Seth Hunt, Esq., aged sixty-six. _ Mr. Hunt 
had been ailing, and apparently failing in his 
health, through the past winter. He wrote a 
letter, and put it into the post-office himself, 
within twenty or thirty minutes of his decease ; 
and Dr. Morse had left him alone in his cham- 
ber, to procure some medicine needed, but five 
minutes before he was found dead. Mr. Hunt 
has been extensively known, in various portions 
of the Union, as connected with various enter- 
prises ; and has left very many friends, with, we 
suspect, not an enemy in the world. He was 
appointed by Mr. Jefferson to the head of one 
of the five "districts in which Louisiana was 
divided, when the whole country west of the 
Mississippi was ceded ; since which he has held 
no public office. His enterprises led him to 
cross the Atlantic some five or six times. For 
several years, he had resided at Walpole" 
(" New-Hampshire Sentinel ").

Dr. Orrin Hunt was a native of Lebanon, Conn. 
He was born in that part which is now the town 
of Columbia. 

He read medicine with Dr. Fuller of that place, 
who sustained a high reputation in his profes- 
sion ; and was subsequently connected with the 
State Institution, the Retreat for the Insane, at 
Hartford. Dr. Hunt enjoyed the full confidence 
of his distinguished teacher. 

Dr. Hunt located in Bolton, and was successful in 
medical practice, and esteemed as a citizen. 
He afterwards removed to Glastenbury, and 
there also enjoyed the reputation of a skilful 
and faithful doctor. He continued to be much 
employed in Bolton ; and, after a few years, 
returned to that place. 

Dr. Hunt was taught, by affliction in his family 
and by protracted suffering in his own person, 
to mingle sympathy with his prescriptions for 
others ; and his visits were thus rendered pecu- 
liarly welcome and soothing. 

An acquaintance of nearly forty yearsenables the 
writer to speak of the estimation in which he 
was held by his patients. They looked upon 
him as a friend ; and the medicines administered 
were the more effective and beneficial from the 
confidence he inspired, and the fellow-feeling 
and kindness manifested. 

His Christian influence was much valued, and 
his death deplored as a great loss (Letter 
203).

Mr. Hunt is a son of Sanford Hunt, Esq., of 



Livingston County, N.Y. ; and was born in Wind- 
ham, Greene County, N.Y., on the 5th of August, 
1811. He is a descendant from good Revolution- 
ary ancestry ; his kindred, on both sides, having 
been engaged in the war of the Revolution. His 
grandfather was a surgeon in the army, and lost 
his life in the service. The young patriot, Nathan 
Hale, whose heroic but melancholy death created 
a profound sympathy in the hearts of all the pa- 
triot leaders, was a brother of his maternal grand- 
mother. Others of his family rendered good 
service to their country at a time when patriotism 
required deeds instead of words. 

In the year 1818, his father removed to Portage, 
Livingston (then Alleghany) County, where he still 
resides. Mr. Hunt, at the age of eighteen, re- 
moved to Niagara County, and, in 1830, com- 
menced the study of the law ; and, in 1834, he 
was admitted to the bar of the supreme court. 
He has never been actively engaged in the duties 
and labors of that profession, as the care of large 
landed interests absorbed a great share of his time 
for many years. Such, however, was the confi- 
dence reposed in his integrity and capacity, that 
in 1836, at the age of twenty-five years, he was 
appointed to the office of first judge of the court 
of common pleas in the county of Niagara, and 
was probably the youngest judge of a court of 
record who had then ever been appointed in the 
State. He discharged the duties of the office for 
five years, and declined a re-appointment which 
was tendered to him, and the acceptance of which 
was urged upon him by the members of the bar 
of the county. In the discharge of the judicial 
duties of his office, he exhibited in a high degree 
the possession of those rare faculties for which he 
has since been distinguished in the National Le- 
gislature, — self-possession, quickness of percep- 
tion, sound judgment, and great amenity of 
temper. 

Mr. Hunt was an active member of the Demo- 
cratic party until the election of Mr. Van Buren 
to the Presidency in 1836. He had, however, at 
all times, been an advocate and warmly in favor of 
the leading measures now regarded as Whig doc- 
trines. His attachments to party were not suffi- 
ciently strong to restrain the expression of his 
opinions on important measures ; and he dissented 
in toto from the policy of Mr. Van Buren's admi- 
nistration in regard to internal improvements, the 
tariff, the currency, and the public finances. 

During several years, whilst engaged in dis- 
charging the duties of a judicial station, Mr. Hunt 
withdrew from all active participation in political 
contests ; though he was not unobservant of the 
course of events, nor careful to conceal his 
opinions, which were well known in the commu- 
nity. 

" In the year 1842, he was strongly solicited to 
become the candidate of the Whig party for repre- 
sentative in Congress. Consulting only his own 



204 



GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



disposition, he would have declined the offer : but 
his friends were urgent ; and he was nominated, 
without a dissenting vote, by the Whig District 
Convention. He was elected by a decisive majo- 
rity. His personal popularity was great ; so much 
so, that many of the opposite party gave him their 
suffrages, knowing that his voice and his vote 
must, in many important measures, be found 
against their own principles. Of the estimate 
which his constituents placed upon his character, 
no stronger evidence need be adduced than a 
statement of the fact, that he was, without solicita- 
tion, regularly nominated for the same office, and 
re-elected by largely increased majorities " (" Bio- 
graphical and Political History of Congress "). 
In 1848, he was urged to become a candidate for 
the fourth term, but peremptorily declined. 

We can only refer to some of his speeches and 
reports as showing his views on various political 
topics, and his mode of enforcing them. In ge- 
neral, it is sufficient to say, that he has acted at 
all times cordially with the Whig members of 
Congress on important occasions, and has exer- 
cised a large influence on the action of his asso- 
ciates. The fertility of his mind and the soundness 
of his judgment were early perceived and acknow- 
ledged in that body, and he was very soon 
recognized as a safe counsellor and prudent leader ; 
while the courtesy of his manner, and kindliness of 
his disposition, created warm personal attachment, 
in many instances, among his political oppo- 
nents. 

On the subject of a change of the naturaliza- 
tion laws, Mr. Hunt's course in Congress was 
equally explicit and determined. In December, 
1845, and soon after the general organization of 
the " Native-American " party, a petition from the 
General Assembly of Massachusetts was presented, 
asking " for such amendments to the naturaliza- 
tion laws as would protect the ballot-box and the 
elective franchise from abuses and frauds." It 
gave rise to a protracted and animated debate. 
The ground assumed by Mr. Hunt on this question 
was fair and liberal, and such as, we are assured, 
received the general concurrence of the country, 
though it ran counter to the ultra sentiments of 
many gentlemen on both sides of the line of mo- 
deration which separates the extreme conserva- 
tive from the radical demagogue, reckless of 
results. 

On the great question of the day, — the Wil- 
mot Proviso, — Mr. Hunt has, from the first, acted 
with firmness and decision. His views are unques- 
tionably those entertained by the great mass of 
all parties in the North ; and as he is known to 
be always moderate in the expression of his senti- 
ments, and conciliatory in his bearing, his remarks 
are worthy of record. On giving his vote, on one 
occasion, in favor of excluding slavery from our 
newly acquired territories, he said, — 

" Slavery having been extended over the Loui- 



siana and Florida purchase, and finally over 
Texas, the Free States have pronounced, ' Thus 
far, and no farther.' We insist that this common 
government of ours shall not be employed to 
spread slavery over territory now free ; that human 
bondage shall not be carried into other lands, 
under our national flag ; and that our armies shall 
not go forth, under the colors of freedom, as the 
propagandists of slavery. That, sir, is the lofty 
attitude and the unalterable purpose of the North. 
In this there is no abolitionism to justify the 
incessant denunciations that have been heard. 
Gentlemen seem to deceive themselves by neglect- 
ing a distinction too obvious to be overlooked. 
We aim, not to abolish, but to preserve. Where 
slavery exists, we leave it untouched ; where free- 
dom prevails, we demand that you shall not abolish 
it. While gentlemen denounce the abolition of 
slavery as treasonable and criminal, I hope they 
will indulge us if we protest against the abolition 
of freedom in California, New Mexico, and Chi- 
huahua." Mr. Hunt here expressed his surprise 
at the remarkable language of the gentleman from 
Pennsylvania (Mr. C. J. Ingersoll). " I am speak- 
ing of the opposition to slavery and its extension 
which exists in the Northern States. 

" He said it was a ' new sentiment held by men, 
without reason and without argument ; nothing 
but a sentiment, and not a very wholesome senti- 
ment either.' It is difficult to characterize an 
expression like this, coming from the representa- 
tive of a Free State, without transcending the 
limits of parliamentary order. ' A sentiment ' ! 
Yes, sir, ' a sentiment ' ! It is a sentiment which 
the Almighty has implanted deeply in the human 
heart, and no earthly power can eradicate it. It 
may be insulted and overborne, and trampled in 
the earth ; but, thank God, it can never be extin- 
guished. The fires of martyrdom have been 
kindled often to subdue it, but in vain. It has 
seemed to expire on many a battle-field, but only 
to revive with new energy and beauty. 

"It is the spirit of liberty, which is inherent in 
the soul of man. It is the sentiment which has 
inspired the friends of freedom in every age. 
Why, sir, it was ' a sentiment ' which impelled the 
Pilgrims to encounter the perils of the ocean, and 
the privations of a life in the wilderness, to esta- 
blish freedom of conscience, and secure civil liberty 
for themselves and posterity. 

" The American Revolution was the offspring 
of a sentiment: the right of man to self-govern- 
ment is a sentimem. Let the gentleman sneer : 
it is a sentiment as eternal as the throne of Divine 
Justice, from which it emanates. It may never 
warm the heart of that gentleman ; he may speak 
of it in tones of levity and ridicule : but, fortu- 
nately, a general truth is not weakened by indivi- 
dual exceptions." 

In defending the course of the Whigs in 
Congress on the Mexican War, and in regard to

the principles which should control the government 
in dictating peace, he remarked, — 

" It had been said that there were some poli- 
ticians who were always ready to surrender 
territory that was in dispute. It had become very 
common in these days to cast indiscriminate re- 
proach on those who preferred to settle vexed 
questions of boundary in a pacific manner. To 
claim all, and concede nothing, was now held to be 
the quintessence of patriotism ; but he would 
recognize no such test. 

" He wanted to see these questions discussed in 
an honorable and a candid spirit, according to the 
moral considerations of right and wrong. He 
was for respecting the rights of others, without 
surrendering our own. There was a class of poli- 
ticians who seemed disposed to make use of all 
questions touching the foreign relations of the 
country, merely as means and instruments of party 
aggrandizement and the acquisition of power ; 
and hence they contrived to present these ques- 
tions in such a form as to compel the minority to 
vote against them. 

" This attempt to present the minority before 
the country in the unpopular light of a peace party 
was wholly without foundation. It was not justi- 
fied by their acts, neither would it be. Gentlemen 
seemed to think that power and patriotism were 
identical ; and, because they had all of the one, 
they must, of course, monopolize the other. But, 
if it was glory to maintain the national rights and 
vindicate the national flag, that was a glory shared 
equally by both sides of the House. 

" The gentleman from Virginia (Mr. Drom- 
goole) has alluded to the objects of the war, and 
the spirit in which he would wage the contest. 
While he would pursue the Mexicans in a spirit of 
vengeance, his patriotism revels in the prospect 
of large indemnities of land and money. National 
honor is also to be measured by leagues ; and all 
our wrongs, real or imaginary, will be healed by 
the addition of fresh provinces and enlarged domi- 
nion. Mr. Hunt would pursue the contest in a 
different spirit. He wished to see it prosecuted 
with decisive force and efficiency, till we could 
secure an honorable peace ; but, when the time 
shall arrive to dictate the terms of peace to Mexico, 
he hoped to witness a display of justice and gene- 
rous magnanimity. If we could conquer our own 
rapacity, and restrain the lust of territorial acqui- 
sition, we should achieve a moral victory more 
glorious than the trophies of war. In imposing 
the conditions of amity, he hoped we might exhibit 
a spirit of moderation and forbearance becoming a 
great republic conscious of its power. By our 
rectitude and generosity in the hour of victory, we 
might yet do something to restore the drooping 
honor of the country. When that hour should 
come, we must not disguise it from ourselves that 
appearances were against us. 

" While we are strong and powerful, Mexico is 



feeble and distracted ; and we are already in pos- 
session of a vast territory which was recently 
wrested from her by our own people. But a war 
is upon us ; and, while it continues, it must be 
prosecuted with vigor ; and men of all parties must 
co-operate, by united counsels and common efforts, 
to bring the struggle to a speedy and honorable 
termination." 

On the Oregon question, the annexation of 
Texas, and the subject of a tariff for the protection 
of domestic industry, Mr. Hunt's opinions were 
often and fully expressed. It is not too much to 
say, that they were always liberal, comprehensive, 
and just. They will bear an attentive perusal 
when the partisan asperities of the day, and the 
passions elicited by the occasion, shall have been 
forgotten ; but it is impossible to give separate 
passages from these speeches which would do jus- 
tice to the speaker or the subject. 

At the organization of the Congress of 1847, 
Judge Hunt was appointed chairman of the Com- 
mittee of Commerce, — a station which, in impor- 
tance, is second to but one in the House. On this 
committee he has rendered the country essential 
service, as all will bear witness who regard the 
importance of our external and internal commerce. 
Amongst other labors and services in this station, 
the most useful and interesting was unquestiona- 
bly the preparation of the report of that committee 
on the memorial of the Chicago Convention, and the 
veto message of President Polk, which was pre- 
sented to the House on the 23d June, 1848. In 
all its parts, it is a production of great vigor and 
masterly comprehension. We can ouly quote a 
few passages relating to the importance of bestow- 
ing a fostering care on all works calculated to 
increase and enlarge our internal commerce : — 

" Whilst our commerce with foreign nations," 
says the report, " yields to the government the 
revenues necessary to its support, and brings the 
fruits and fabrics of every clime in return for our 
surplus productions, the commerce among the 
States, stimulated by freedom of intercourse, has 
been still more rapid in its progress, and 
has reached a higher point of value. Independent 
of the interchange of commodities between the 
States for domestic consumption (which far ex- 
ceeds in amount our entire foreign trade), the main 
bulk of our foreign commerce is derived from and 
forms an ingredient in the internal trade of the 
country. Our exports must be first conveyed 
from the producer, by the navigable waters of the 
interior, to the seaboard : our imports are con- 
veyed inland, by the same channels, to the remot- 
est points of consumption. Every increase of 
foreign commerce necessarily swells our internal 
trade ; and the elements of each are so blended 
and intermixed together, as to form, in reality, one 
great common interest, identified with the national 
prosperity, and presenting equal claims to the 
encouragement and protection of government. If 



206 



GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



any discrimination were admissible, the internal 
trade may be said to be of paramount importance, 
since it is of the first necessity to the people, 
larger in value, and, in point of fact, includes the 
transit of a large share of the commodities com- 
posing our commerce with other countries. 
Viewed as objects of national concern, no line of 
distinction can be drawn between these great 
interests. It requires a perverse ingenuity to 
separate them, and define where either begins or 
terminates. Indeed, it may be affirmed that the 
safe and convenient navigation of our lakes and 
rivers is indispensable to the prosperity of the 
foreign as well as the inland trade of the coun- 
try. 

" It will be perceived that the protection of 
navigation, whether along the seaboard or in the 
interior, on all the great channels of trade, is a 
subject, not of mere local or sectional concern, but 
of high national interest, affecting the whole Union 
and all its parts. Each of the thirty States com- 
posing the Union is connected with the navigable 
waters, either of the sea, the lakes, or the rivers. 
Each is concerned in the safe and easy navigation 
of all the channels over which the national com- 
merce is borne. Every State in the interior may 
claim an interest in the safety and sufficiency of 
the harbors on the coast, through which their pro- 
ductions must pass in quest of a foreign market. 
The States on the seaboard are no less interested 
in the navigation of the Western waters, through 
which the States are enabled to carry on a constant 
interchange of commodities at home, and to send 
forward the agricultural products which form the 
main bulk of our foreign trade. What section 
so isolated in position as to be unconcerned in the 
navigable waters which carry forth our vast and 
varied productions ? The growth and expansion 
of our inland commerce is the surest indication, as 
it is one of the chief sources, of our unexampled 
prosperity and progress. 

" Complete and adequate protection can be 
given only through the agency of a general sys- 
tem, national in its character, comprehending the 
whole Union and its entire navigation. It must 
be broad and pervading, embracing every section, 
and reaching every channel of national commerce. 
By the adoption of a national plan resting upon 
sound and enlightened principles, every portion of 
the Union will derive its equitable share of the 
common benefit, and no part will have reason to 
complain of injustice or inequality. Such a system 
will insure that free commercial intercourse between 
the States which was a leading object of the Fede- 
ral Constitution." 

The report contains a masterly review of Pre- 
sident Polk's famous veto message. The positions 
assumed by the President are so completely anni- 
hilated, as to render their revival a work of 
impossibility. Among other things, the President 
virtually assumed the ground, that the obligations 



of the government, concerning the regulation of 
commerce and navigation, are impaired and les- 
sened by the expansion of our national limits ; 
which is thus noticed in the report : — 

" If we concede the force of this reasoning, we 
must also admit that it has been fortified by the 
addition of ten degrees to our possessions on the 
Pacific coast since the date of the message. But 
the committee are hardly prepared to admit the 
doctrine, that the powers or obligations of govern- 
ment, concerning the regulation of commerce and 
navigation, are in any degree impaired by the 
expansion of our national limits. On the contrary, 
it is conceived that the vast extent of our naviga- 
ble waters, and the relative augmentation of our 
commerce, impose commensurate duties upon 
Congress. The responsibility of government is 
rather increased than lessened by the growing im- 
portance and magnitude of the subject. If appro- 
priations in furtherance of navigation are to be 
abandoned or diminished by reason of our geo- 
graphical extension, it follows that every new 
accession of territory brings weakness instead of 
strength, and the protection of what we have is 
inconsistent with further acquisitions. Unless the 
capacity of the government is equal to its territo- 
rial expanse, it results that the nation is too large 
for the Constitution, and the agency of the federal 
power must fail to accomplish the great ends of its 
creation. The argument of the President on this 
point is hardly consistent with the known fact, that 
every addition of territory heretofore acquired has 
been sought mainly, or at least ostensibly, with a 
view to commercial advantages. Louisiana was 
purchased, at a cost of fifteen millions, to secure 
the free navigation of the Mississippi. Florida 
was obtained, at a great cost, because its posses- 
sion was deemed necessary to the protection of our 
commerce on the Gulf. We have waged a bloody 
war, and finally stipulated by treaty to pay many 
millions of purchase-money, to secure the ports of 
California on the Pacific. 

" After paying such enormous sums to obtain 
the command of these great highways of commerce, 
is it rational to contend that Congress has no 
power to make them available by removing the 
impediments which obstruct their navigation ? 

" Is it constitutional and wise to exhaust mil- 
lions in the removal of political restraints, if the 
government be really incompetent to touch those 
natural obstacles which are far more fatal to free- 
dom, and security of trade ? Is the government 
supreme in its power to acquire, and yet impotent 
to improve ? all-powerful to purchase or annex 
ports and rivers, and devoid of faculty to clear 
them out, and make them accessible to shipping? 
The Executive recently offered Mexico five mil- 
lions of dollars for a right of way across the 
Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Without discussing 
the expediency of offering so large a sum for the 
privilege of opening a commercial communication 



NORTHAMPTON LINE. 



207 



through a foreign country whilst we refuse a single 
million to improve the commercial channels within 
our limits, it may he well to inquire if the Presi- 
dent seriously intended to pay five millions for a 
right of way which the government has no consti- 
tutional capacity to execute. Perhaps it would 
be difficult to present a more complete illustration 
of the fallacy of this branch of the President's 
argument. 

"A country possessing such unrivalled re- 
sources and advantages, boasting a commerce so 
magnificent, and a chain of navigable waters 
almost boundless in extent, can afford to clear its 
rivers from snags, and furnish safe harbors for 
shipping. "Whatever additional expenditures may 
be demanded by the necessities of an expanding 
commerce will be more than compensated by the 
consequent increase of revenue." 

Mr. Hunt originated the only measure as yet 
adopted for establishing the semblance of a go- 
vernment in California. The bill extending the 
revenue laws to that country, and establishing 
ports of entry there, was introduced by him ; and 
to his vigorous efforts its success may, in no small 
degree, be attributed. 

In February, 1849, and before the close of his 
congressional term, Mr. Hunt was elected Comp- 
troller of the State of New York by a vote almost 
unanimous ; and, immediately after the adjourn- 
ment of Congress, he removed to Albany, and 
entered upon the duties of the office. Having the 
management of the finances of the State, and a 
voice in the Canal Board, the office is one of the 
first importance in the State. That he will dis- 
charge the duties of the station creditably to 
himself, and advantageously to the State, will not 
be doubted by any one who is acquainted with his 
capacity for the management of important inte- 
rests, and his aptitude for the ready discharge of 
complex and laborious duties. The offices he has 
held have come to him unsought : they were free- 
will offerings from those who repose confidence in 
his sound judgment, capacity, and integrity. 

In private life, few men have more devoted 
friends. Urbane to all, charitable to all who differ 
from him in opinion, possessing a generous dispo- 
sition, a heart flowing with kindness, and a temper 
rarely disturbed by any event, he seldom loses a 
friend or finds a personal enemy. 

In the autumn of 1849, he was chosen, by the 
people, comptroller for two years. In the autumn 
of 1850, was chosen Governor of New York for 
a term of two years. He was a candidate for the 
ensuing term, but was unsuccessful. He was 
chairman of the Convention at Richmond for the 
nomination of Bell and Everett for the Presidency 
in 1860. Although indifferent to any more public 
favor, his name was used by the " People's Party " 
as their candidate for Congress from his district at 
the recent autumnal election, 1862 ; and was de- 
feated by the opposition.

LINES, 

Written on the Death of Hannah Wells Hunt; to be sung at her Funeral. 

BY MRS. ABIGAIL HYDE. 

Jesus, whither shall we go ? 

In the fearful dying strife, 
When our hearts are crushed with woe, 

Thou hast words of endless life, — 

Life amidst the wreck of death, 

Joys to mingle with our joys. 
"We would look to thee in faith; 

Would to life with thee arise, — 

Life for her whose precious dust 

We with tears to earth consign: 
Did she not her Saviour trust V 

Was she not a lamb of thine ? 

And we trust, that, near the throne, 
She has gained the ransomed band ; 

While dear friends, before her gone, 
Hail her to that happy land. 

Saviour, watch o'er those in love 
Wont with her to watch and pray : 

May they meet their friends above, 
Where all tears are wiped away !

DOCUMENTS. 



I. A GOOD CHRISTIAN FAMILY MEMOIR. 

My grandfather's name was William Hunt. He married Mary Crosby. Grandfather 
died when he was about fifty years old. I believe my grandmother lived to be about eighty. 
She was a woman of a remarkable memory. She had a thorough knowledge of the Bible : 
it was a lamp to her feet, and a light to her path, and the guide of her life. She was one 
of those blessed old Puritan mothers, who helped lay the foundations of our Christian insti- 
tution. After her husband's death, she gathered her family around the family-altar, and 
sought God's divine blessing upon her family, and also at the family-board. She was a 
member of the Congregational Church in Vernon, Conn. ; where she and her husband lived 
after their marriage, and where they also died and were buried. They rest from their labors, 
and their works do follow them. My father was their youngest child. I have often heard 
my father speak of the religious instruction he received from that devoted mother. His 
name was Jesse Lyman Hunt. He was born in Vernon, Conn., Aug. 14, A.D. 1776. He 
was married in the year 1804, April 26, to Temperance Bugbee, daughter of Capt. Hezekiah 
Bugbee of Woodstock, Conn. They purchased a home, and established themselves as a 
family, in Woodstock. His Avife was born in Woodstock, Jan. 17, 1781. They both thought 
they gave their hearts to God, and professed their faith in Christ, and united with the Con- 
gregational churches in the towns where they were born. [See tables.] The three children 
were all born in Woodstock, Conn. Our parents were trained up by pious, devoted mothers. 
They believed in a covenant-keeping God. They felt it a duty and a privilege to dedicate 
their children to God. They wanted the seal of that covenant placed upon their foreheads. 
They wanted them all embraced in that covenant God made with his people a great while 
before. I think that they entered into that covenant with a solemn sense of their obligation 
to God, and the part they had got to act in the matter. I think so ; because I know how soon 
they began, and how faithfully they continued, that instruction which was calculated to make 
them wise unto salvation. In short, those three children (Hannah, Lucy, and James) had a 
mother that taught them how to live and how to die. We, as a family, had a great many trials 
and a great many blessings. Those three children were all converted when they were young, 
and all united with the Congregational Church. I know that covenant-keeping God was 
faithful to fulfil his promises to that family. We, as a family, were all united in the service of 
God. Oh ! how we used to pray, and sing God's praises, and go to the house of God, toge- 
ther ! I think it may be said, we were a household of faith where Jesus loved to dwell. 
We, as a family, knew what it was to love God and love each other. But the time arrived 
when those family ties which bound us together on earth were to be severed. When we saw 
those seeds of dissolution springing up, oh ! how we wept ! How we prayed, " O my God ! 



212 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



must it, shall it, be so ? " Oh ! how hard to say, " Thy will, O God ! be done " ! God offered us 
the rich consolations of his Spirit. Hannah was afflicted with a tumor, which told us she 
must soon leave us. She told us she was perfectly resigned to the will of God. She could 
say, " I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course : henceforth there is laid up 
for me a blessed crown, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day ; 
and not only to me, but to all those that truly love God." Lucy was laid low upon a bed of 
sickness and death at the same time. She was one of those lovely girls whom Jesus loved 
most dearly. We watched with deep anxiety when that messenger of death should enter to 
execute that dreadful summons, and take away those two lovely daughters and sisters. A 
few days before that final separation on earth was to take place, Hannah requested her bro- 
ther to get her into a chair, and convey her to the room where lay her dying sister Lucy. As 
she looked into the face of that dying sister she loved so well, a silent tear stole down her 
cheek. She could not speak. She immediately calmed her feelings, and addressed herself 
in these words : " Lucy, we must soon die. You will go first: I shall soon follow you. 
"We shall soon be together again where Jesus is." Who would not say, " Let me die the death 
of the righteous ; let my last end be like his " ? They were lovely and pleasant in their lives ; 
and, in their death, they were not divided. 

James L. Hunt was married to Betsey Warren, Jan. 3, A.D. 1836, in the town of Kil- 
lingly, Conn. She was born in Killingly, April 6, 1817. She obtained a hope in Christ 
before she was married. She united with the Congregational Church in Brooklyn, Conn. 
After she was married, when we commenced to live together as man and wife, we erected an 
altar for the worship of God. We endeavored to live from day to day as it becometh the 
servants of the living God. We enjoyed the blessings of our heavenly Father, — that blessed 
promise to thee and thy seed after thee. [See tables.] " One generation passeth away ; 
another takes their places." How true it is, all are born to die ! The next death we have 
to record is of Lucy Elmira ; which occurred Feb. 3, 1845, under very afflicting circum- 
stances. She was scalded. It was a very sad and heart-rending affliction to her parents ; 
but they had to give her up to him who said, " Suffer little children to come unto me, and 
forbid them not ; for of such is the kingdom of Heaven." But God is preparing a cup of 
affliction for the family, more bitter than any thing that has been administered as yet. That 
husband has one of the kindest and best of companions. Those five remaining children have 
a very kind and tender mother, who toils incessantly, night and day, in administering to the 
wants of the family. God comes in a very sudden and unexpected manner, and lays her 
low upon a bed of death. But God is with her there. She bore her sufferings with Chris- 
tian fortitude. She exhibited the most heavenly spirit I ever witnessed. The last sabbath 
she spent on earth was a solemn one for the family. She requested her husband to call her 
family into the room where she was, and read a chapter in the Bible, and seek God's divine 
blessing to rest upon us as a family. The husband and father attempted to perform that 
duty ; but, in view of that cup Avhich was being administered, oh ! how could he pray audibly ? 
He attempted it ; but he failed. The next day, her physicians told she must die. She was 
perfectly resigned to the will of God. She called her family around her dying bed, and gave 
them the counsel of a dying godly mother. After that, I believe, she sweetly fell asleep in 
Jesus. She died at Central Falls, B.I., March 2, A.D. 1852. " What was our loss was her 
gain." 



NORTHAMPTON LINE. 213 



God has promised to bless the families who put their trust in him ; for God ordained 
the family relation from the beginning. The present wife and mother enters upon her duties 
with a solemn sense of her obligation to God ; she being a member of the Free-will Baptist 
Church of Pawtucket, Mass., and a consistent Christian. She has proved herself worthy to 
fill the place. She has nobly and faithfully performed the duties required of her, and has 
won the love and esteem of all the family. Surely, how good God has been to us as a 
family ! 

The next death to record in the family is James Elmar, who died suddenly, Oct. 6, 1853. 
While the young and the middle-aged have been taken away from us, some have lived to 
good old age. The father and grandfather, Jesse L. Hunt, was taken sick, and died very 
suddenly, Nov. 19, 1857, in the eighty-second year of his age. His wife remained to spend 
a few more years of dreadful pain and suffering ; but we all must yield to the grim messenger 
of death. Temperance Hunt, wife of Jesse L. Hunt, died May 31, 1861, in her eighty-first 
year. God's promise was fulfilled to her : " Honor thy father and mother, that thy days may 
be long in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee." Those that have been taken from 
us have all been buried in the old family burying-ground in South Woodstock, Conn. 

Henry B. Hunt, before spoken of, is in Silver City, Nevada Territory. 

Erastus M. Hunt is a worthy member of the Fourth Baptist Church in Providence. 
He is now in the army of the United States. He was married to Amanda Ann Taylor, 
Nov. 24, 1859. She is also a member of the church and a consistent Christian. Mary 
Elizabeth Hunt, their first child, was born in Johnson, R.I., June 22, 1861. 

I have spoken of what God has done for us : to him belongs all the glory. 

(Letter 372.) James L. Hunt.

III. DR. EBENEZER HUNT. 

A drug-store in Northampton was established, in 1769, by Dr. Levi Shepherd and Dr. 
Ebenezer Hunt. At the close of the Revolutionary War, about the year 1783, this copart- 
nership was dissolved, and Dr. Hunt continued the business. About the year 1797, Dr. 
Hunt admitted his son Ebenezer as a partner with him ; the firm being styled E. Hunt and 
Son. Dr. Hunt, sen., retired from the business a few years thereafter ; E. Hunt, jun., con- 
tinuing alone until 1828, when Winthrop Hillyer became associated with him ; the name of 
the firm being E. Hunt and Company. In 1836, Mr. Hunt retired ; and Mr. Hillyer, in 
connection with a silent partner, continued the business, under the name of W. Hillyer and 
Company, until 1842. 

Died on the 26th December, 1820, the Hon. Ebenezer Hunt, M.D., aged seventy-six. 
Sir Francis Bacon remarks, " that it is as natural to die as to be born, and perhaps as little 
painful ; " and it may be added, there are few men who possess such a hold upon the grati- 
tude, or such elevation in the esteem, or interest in the affections, of their cotemporaries, as 
to excite, in any considerable number of them, more regret when they leave the world than 
pleasure when they enter it. The one is but the introduction to a state of diversified exist- 
ence, — a state of trial, and consequently of solicitude and pain : the other, to him who has 
rightly estimated and wisely performed the business of life, is the termination of every vicis- 
situde of temptation and suffering ; the harmonious close, which, like concords in music, are 
rendered more sweet by the painful dissonance that precedes them. Yet, though the mind 
is satisfied with this reflection, the heart often rejects it, especially when the finger of Provi- 
dence touches us nearly, and present bereavement presses upon the soul. The dominion of 
the understanding over the affections in such case is impotent, and, in most cases, more par- 
tial than we are willing to admit. 



NORTHAMPTON LINE. 215 



The instances of general affliction springing from the same source, we have remarked, 
are rare. Yet, when the Father of his Country died, it was otherwise ; and, in a more limited 
degree, when a late distinguished citizen of the Commonwealth died ; and, still more recently, 
when he who is the subject of these reflections was summoned from this to a brighter world. 
Dr. Hunt, although he was honored with the confidence of his fellow-citizens, and was early 
called to the discharge of the various municipal duties of the town in which he lived and in 
which he was born and died ; although for many years he was a representative in the General 
Court, and a senator of the Commonwealth ; although he was member of several learned 
societies, and a vice-president of that in which he was professionally most interested, and, in 
these several departments, acquitted himself with no ordinary ability, — yet in his capacity as 
a physician he is most to be admired ; and in that capacity his loss is most felt, and within 
the sphere of his extensive practice most lamented. There is something in the character of a 
family physician very interesting, and in his relation to his fellow-beings peculiar. To other 
men we commit our property and our reputation ; but, to him, our lives. He is to us a kind 
of guardian angel, to avert or mitigate the natural evils of life ; and when he, in turn, who 
has raised us from sickness, is laid low, and the speaking eye which has cheered us asks in 
vain for relief, we feel emotions, not of grief merely, but of grief heightened by obligation 
and gratitude, sympathy and nature. 

Perhaps there was never a more tender or attentive physician than Dr. Hunt, or one 
who realized more impressively the importance of his office ; and there have been but few 
more skilful or more extensively useful. And, what fills the circle of a medical man's cha- 
racter, and renders it perfect, be was a gentleman and a Christian. For more than half a 
century, his house was the abode of hospitality ; and wherever, among his patients or his 
friends or human-kind, he found poverty in affliction, he relieved it, and with the unostenta- 
tious good nature which satisfies want without exciting feelings of dependence, and creates 
obligation without extorting from gratitude a pledge for its discharge. 

About a year since, conscious that he had advanced to the last verge of life, he adjusted 
all his concerns with this world, and waited for his summons to the other. He died after 
years of usefulness that shed a radiance upon the past, and with the hope that cheered him 
in his prospects of the future. [Obituary written by Hon. I. G. Bates.'] 



IV. DR. DAVID HUNT 

Begs leave to acquaint his friends and the public, that he has made new arrangements in 
his professional business, and has taken in connection with him Dr. B. Barrett. In future, 
the business will be conducted under the firm of Hunt and Barrett. The former patients of 
Dr. Hunt may rest assured, that every attention their necessities may require will be promptly 
and carefully rendered. 

Drs. Hunt and Barrett have a good selection of surgical instruments, and the most 
approved apparatus for fractured and dislocated bones. They respectfully solicit the patron- 
age of this enlightened community in the different branches of their profession. 



216 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



Gentlemen desirous of pursuing the study of medicine, will find, under their instruc- 
tion, every facility which the country affords. They can have access to a large and well- 
selected library, including the most recent and valuable works upon medicine, botany, and 
mineralogy ; an herbarium of above a thousand plants, labelled and classified ; and an exten- 
sive collection of minerals, classically and scientifically arranged. No expense or exertion 
shall be spared that will contribute in the least degree to their improvement. Clinical re- 
marks will be made upon medical cases, and practical instruction in anatomy and operative 
surgery will be given. 

Northampton, Feb. 4, 1824. 



V. DRS. DAVID AND EBENEZER HUNT. 

Neiu Meeting-house. — The ground-plot for a meeting-house for the new Congregational 
society has been purchased on the corner, south-west of the Bank, called Dr. Hunt's Corner. 
It contains twenty-two or twenty-three square rods, and is an eligible situation. The price 
given for it is three thousand dollars, or about fifty cents per square foot. 

This corner was a part of the highway, or common, until King Philip's War, in 1676 ; 
when about half an acre was given by the town to William Smead, who had been driven 
within the palisades by the Indians. It was afterwards owned by Thomas Alvord and others 
until 1730 ; when it was sold, with a house, barn, and hatter's shop, to Deacon Ebenezer 
Hunt, for a hundred and thirty pounds, in the depreciated currency of that day ; equal, per- 
haps, to a hundred and fifty or a hundred and sixty dollars. After remaining in the Hunt 
Family a hundred and three years, Dr. David Hunt, a grandson of Deacon Ebenezer Hunt, 
has sold about one-fourth of the half-acre, without any buildings, for three thousand dollars. 
The large elm-tree east of the corner was set out in 1744, — eighty-nine years ago. The tree 
at the corner is not so old. [News-slip, 1833.] 



VI. AN OLD CARD. 

In retiring from the practice of his profession, to which he has been sedulously devoted 
for more than thirty years, Dr. Hunt tenders to his friends and patrons his acknowledgments 
for the uniform and long-continued support which they have given him ; and he begs them 
to be assured, that he shall ever hold their kindness and liberality in most grateful remem- 
brance. The course which he has resolved upon taking was calculated to excite, and has 
excited, in his mind, many painful reflections, as it separates him from a numerous circle, to 
which he has long stood professionally in a most interesting relation. He does, however, 
derive much satisfaction from the knowledge, that he is succeeded in business by gentlemen 
on whose professional skill and abilities he has no doubt his friends and the public may rely 
with confidence (1835).

and opened the first school in Cooperstown, where the late J. Fenimore Cooper was one of his early 
pupils. He represented Otsego County in the State Legislature from 1797 to 1800 inclusive, and soon 
afterward removed to St. Lawrence County, where he was a farmer for twenty years ; thence removing 
to Watertown, where he was engaged in trade until a few years since, when he gave up business, being 
over eighty years of age. He is now (1856) nearly ninety, and in firm health; having always lived a 
temperate, virtuous, and exemplary life, as became the descendant of a long line of Puritan ancestry, 
and an ardent supporter of Washington's administration. — Newspaper. Bissele has been elsewhere

GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



Cranston Division. 

The town of Cranston was visited Monday, May 
26, 1862. The distance to the office of record 
is but about a mile from Providence, — an easy 
omnibus-trip from the City Exchange. The 
records of the past were in good preservation 
in a nice, new brick building, with a white mar- 
ble indented sign, " Town-clerk's Office," and 
a sturdy iron safe of especial strength and secu- 
rity. The clerk, venerable and astute, with 
abundant and dignified politeness, facilitated the 
research for such genealogical facts as could be 
found. Unlike the mode of most other States, 
here the deeds, probate and town records, are 
in the same registry. 
Deeds, vol. ii. p. 1. — Zebedee Hunt, coaster, 
of Warwick, buys of John Fish two lots of 
land at Long Neck, easterly side of Palmer's 
Cove, July 1, 1767.

half pew, Oct. 14, 1767. 
Vol. v. — Zebedee Hunt, Jun., and wife Nancy, 
sell house and shop at Long Neck, Pawtuxet, 
1796. Witness, Josiah Hunt. [Mr. David 
Hunt, one of the pleasantest men you need 
look for, related the circumstance of his grand- 
father moving the house by water over Narra- 
ganset Bay on scows; which was thought, at 
the time, an unusual and wonderful achievement. 
It was a task of magnitude. The building, of 
forty feet front and two stories high, is now 
standing in South Main Street.] 
Vol. x. 375. — Benjamin Hunt and wife Lydia 
sell land in Cranston, 1822. Mary Ann Hunt 
sells to Chipman land at Pawtuxet, 1828.

$908.30, was ordered to be administered Aug. 
29, 1807. Heirs, Joseph, Zebedee, Henry H.,

At the State House in Providence, May 24 and 
26, 1862, an introduction was afforded, and 
unlimited time through the day allowed, to in- 
spect the various new and old documents in the 
office of the Secretary of State. Mr. Bartlett's 



urbane and true Rhode-Island courteousness 
placed every thing easy and agreeable.

Hunt's family was four persons : viz., female,

Obituary. 

From "Hampshire Gazette" of Oct. 26, 1826 
" Thursday evening last, Mr. Seth Hunt, jun. 



of the firm of Hunt and Fenner, after an ill- 
ness of four days, aged forty-nine. He was an 
enterprising merchant and an estimable citi- 
zen, whose death is lamented by all "who knew 
him, and is particularly the cause of poignant 
sorrow to an aged father, a widowed partner, 
and other near connections. In his immediate 
neighborhood, the anxiety evinced during his 
distressing illness was a striking evidence of 
the estimation in which he was held ; and the 
general sympathy that followed him to the grave 
bore testimony to the deep regret felt at the 
loss of so valuable and useful a member of 
society." 
In burial-lot to the left of father and mother's 
gravestones is a white marble: —

Thomas Sterry, 311 Professor, &c, s. of Peleg.* 

Reprinted, for private distribution, from the new 
" American Cyclopaedia," vol. ix. : " Hunt, 
Thomas Sterry, an American chemist, mine- 
ralogist, and geologist, born in Norwich, Conn., 
Sept. 5, 1826. His early education was ob- 
tained at the academy and grammar-school of 
his native town. He studied for a while with 
a view to the medical profession, but was sub- 
sequently induced to devote himself to chemis- 
try ; and accordingly, in 1845, became a private 
student with Prof. B. Silliman, jun., in Yale 
College ; where he was also subsequently 
chemical assistant to Prof. Silliman, sen. . . . 
After two years' study in the Yale Laboratory, 
he was offered, by the late Prof. James F. W. 
Johnston, the post of chemical assistant in his 
newly established school of agricultural che- 
mistry in Edinburgh ; but he declined this 
overture, in order to accept the post of chemist 
and mineralogist to the Geological Commission 
for the survey of Canada, still in progress, 
under Sir W. E. Logan. He had previously 



been named to the same post in the Geological 
Survey in Vermont, then in progress ; which he 
declined. His labors in the Canadian survey 
have contributed greatly to advance our know- 
ledge both of the scientific and economical 
geology of Canada. 
" His earlier studies were especially directed to 
organic chemistry, then assuming shape from 
the labors of Liebig, Dumas, Laurent, and 
Gerhardt. It was as the reviewer, interpreter, 
and critic of these chemists, that Mr. Hunt first 
became known. Boldly attacking the views of 
the rival schools of Giessen and Montpellier, 
he developed, from the germs contained in 
some of the papers of Laurent, a system which 
may be said to be essentially his own. In this 
system, he deduces all chemical compounds, 
organic and inorganic, from simple types, which 
are represented by one or more atoms of water 
of hydrogen. These bold views he maintained, 
at first single-handed, in a series of papers 
which appeared in successive volumes of the 
' American Journal of Science ' from 1848 to 
1851 ; but they were at length accepted by 
Williamson and Brodie in England, by Wurtz 
in Paris, and at last by Gerhardt himself. This 
happy conception of Mr. Hunt will rank in the 
history of the science with the compound radi- 
cal theory of Liebig, and the law of homologous 
series of Gerhardt. Its author has now the 
satisfaction of seeing it generally received, 
although it is often erroneously attributed to 
the chemists last named ; who were, however, 
led by Mr. Hunt by two or three years, and 
who historically are his followers. 
" Mr. Hunt's philosophical views in chemistry and 
physics have plainly been influenced by the 
study of Kant, and, still more, of Hegel and 
Stallo. This may be seen in his essays on 
' Solution, Chemical Changes, and Atomic Vo- 
lumes,' which appeared first in the ' American 
Journal of Science,' but were republished in 
England and Germany. In these he attacks 
the long-established atomic hypothesis, and all 
its consequences ; and asserts that chemical 
union is interpretation, or rather identification. 
His researches upon the atomic volumes of 
liquids and solids were a remarkable anticipa- 
tion of those of Dumas ; while, by his views 
on the polymerism of mineral species, he has 
opened a new and as yet unexplored field for 
mineralogy. 
" These philosophical studies have, however, only 
been incidental to Mr. Hunt's more serious 
labors of research in chemical mineralogy and 
chemical geology. These researches, still in 
progress on the sedimentary rocks of Canada 
and its mineral waters, have already contribu- 
ted essentially towards obtaining more Just 
views of chemical geology, and a more rational 
theory of rock metamorphism, while serving to 



236 



GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



elucidate the rocks of Canada, in aid of the 
researches of Sir W. E. Logan in the strati- 
graphical geology of that country. Thus the 
analyses and chemical researches of Mr. Hunt 
have demonstrated that the wide-spread altera- 
tion and crystallization of the sedimentary 
rocks, constituting what is known as normal 
metamorphism, have been produced by the in- 
tervention of alkaline waters ; and his conclu- 
sions were speedily confirmed by the recent 
experiments of Daubree. In some of his 
recent papers, Mr. Hunt has discussed the the- 
ory of igneous rocks and of volcanic phenomena 
from a new point of view ; and has, in a forci- 
ble manner, revived the almost forgotten views 
of Herschel and Keferstein, who placed the 
seat and source of all these in the sedimentary 
deposits of the earth's crust. He undertakes 
to show, that the chemical re-actions established 
in these sediments by the ascending heat of the 
earth's nucleus will explain all volcanic and 
plutonic phenomena. He has farther discussed 
the chemical condition of a cooling globe (such 
as the primal earth is assumed to have been) ; 
and essays to show how the present chemical 
conditions of the sea, the atmosphere, and the 
solid rocks, have been produced by the slow 
operation of natural causes. In his lately pub- 
lished researches on the formation of gypsums 
and magnesian rocks ('American Journal of 
Science' [2], xxviii.), he has, by the discovery 
of new and most important re-actions of the 
salts of lime and magnesia, been able to resolve, 
in a rational way, the knotty problem of the 
formation of these rocks, and refute the ordi- 
nary hypotheses of their origin. His memoirs 
of the_ Serpentines, or Ophiolites, and on 
Euphotide and Saussurite, among others in 
chemical lithology, are noticeable for laborious 
and successful research. 
" Besides the contributions of Mr. Hunt to the 
'American Journal of Science ' and to the Lon- 
don ' Philosophical Magazine,' the Royal 
Society, the French Academy of Sciences, &c, 
we may notice his share in the reports of the 
geological survey of Canada, for the last ten 
years. He is also the author of a summary of 
organic chemistry, forming a part of Prof. Sil- 
liman's ' First Principles of Chemistry.' Mr. 
Hunt was one of the English members of the 
international jury at the Great Exhibition at 
Paris in 1855, where he attracted attention by 
his contributions to the Geological Society of 
France and the French Academy. At that 
time, he was decorated, by Napoleon III., with 
the Cross of the Legion of Honor. In addi- 
tion to his duties as a member of the Geological 
Commission of Canada, Mr. Hunt is Professor 
of Chemistry to the Faculty of Arts in the 
University of Quebec, where he lectures in 
the French language. In 1854, he received 



the honorary degree of A.M. from Harvard 
College ; and, in 1857, that of Doctor of 
Science from the University of Quebec. He is 
a member of various learned bodies ; and, in 
1859, was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society 
of London. A complete list of Mr. Hunt's 
scientific memoirs would occupy more space 
than our limits permit. In the second series 
of the ' American Journal of Science,' alone, 
he has published seventy -one papers since 
1846. J V t

1862. University Intelligence. 

" It will give much pleasure to the friends of sci- 
entific education and of the M'Gill University 
to be informed, that, at a late meeting of the 
Board of Governors, T. Sterry Hunt, Esq., 
Sc. D., M.A., F.R.S., &c, was appointed to 
the Chair of Applied Chemistry and Mineralogy 
now created in the Faculty of Arts. While the 
eminent qualifications and high reputation of 
Dr. Hunt shed lustre on this new chair, the 
University has conferred an important benefit 
on the country, and especially on this city, in 
placing within the reach of young men, entering 
on those professions in which a knowledge of 
practical chemistry is of importance, advan- 
tages which they have heretofore been obliged 
to seek abroad. There can be no doubt, that, 
in this great centre of manufactures and medi- 
cal education, a large number of students will 
be found ready to avail themselves of the means 
of scientific training thus offered. 
" It is proper to add, that the University is en- 
abled to extend its usefulness in this direction 
chiefly through the liberality of two of its 
friends, — William Molson," Esq., who has 
erected the laboratory building ; and another 
gentleman, who for the present withholds his 
name, who contributes the salary of the Chair, — 
leaving merely the apparatus and incidental ex- 
penses to be provided for by the University. 
" The present appointment does not interfere with 
the Professorship of Chemistry in the Medical 
Faculty, so long and efficiently held by Dr. 
Sutherland ; Dr. Hunt's duties being limited to 
the students in arts, and to special students in 
practical chemistry : while the removal of mi- 
neralogy from the Chair of natural history will 
enable Dr. Dawson to devote himself more 
exclusively to other departments of that exten- 
sive subject ; thus rendering the course of natu- 
ral science in M'Gill University one of the 
most complete to be found anywhere. Dr. Hunt 
retains his connection with the Geological Sur- 
vey of Canada ; and, in adding thereto the 
function of a public teacher, only conforms 
himself to the established practice of the officers 
of the Geological Survey of Great Britain."

Rhode Island is and has been the abode of the most admirable people either in New England or 
on the American continent. Early a refuge from ecclesiastical persecution, here the followers of Roger 
Williams, and of his easy, secure, and solid system of religious belief, from a mere handful have become 
a great and extended people of migration and permanent settlement. Banking, insurance, and manu- 
factures are conducted here with prodigious facility by a people skilled and reliable, who thoroughly 
understand what they are about, and possess the confidence of the community everywhere abroad who 
value integrity and a perfect dependence upon good business capacity and punctual trustworthiness. 

Providence — doing honor to its blessed name — is one of the sweetest cities to go and visit or 
abide in that we can believe to exist in any latitude lower than paradise itself. Is there a heart's wish, 
even only to be whispered, that cannot be indulged (if it is on virtue's side) among the impassioned and 
generous city people, so free and amiable in intercourse of acquaintance and friendship ? We are right 
glad to place a lineage of the name of Hunt in this locality ; and believe, that, with better fortune in 
getting replies from North Kingston and other Bay settlements, we could have been more perfect. 



246 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY, 



SALEM LINE. 



Several years after the original planting of the settlement at Salem, Mass., Lewis 
Hunt established his abode and left posterity. Within a century past, Thomas Hunt 
came from one of the British kingdoms and selected this place for the residence of his 
family. The data of the family of the first, are furnished with eminent kindness and 
good favor by Rev. John Lewis Russell ; and are corroborated in part by some parallel 
collections of G. R. Curwen, Esq. Of the second branch we get what is related by 
the descendants (especially Mr. Stanley,) and what the Records exhibit to enhance 
and strengthen the whole ; making a thorough and valuable lineage. 

Salem, as it appears at this day, surviving all that has been peculiarly notable in 
past history, does not do much discredit to the good name first given it with high 
regard to scriptural significance. " The city of our God " is a proud nomenclature, 
and it is well it should ever be honored. The worthy Annalist, who has been laborious 
and exact, supplies a good History which may be resorted to with great confidence for 
any other than special researches in genealogy. This delightful city, and its localities 
and personages of the past, seems imbued with many pleasant associations in the 
mind ; as if the place had been looked upon and had felt (amid all its higher and 
abundant blessings,) the untroubled and resplendent look of some good man of genius 
like Hawthorne ; who by his entrancing stories, like those of " Twice told Tales " and 
others of his mint of mind, had sublimated every thing of low degree, and made every 
spot and person elevated to his pure tastes and sweetly illustrious. 

The old " Lewis Hunt House " he has celebrated in his elegant romance The 
House of Seven Gables. Thanks to the dear and good author who amuses so ingeniously 
and with power. Going often through the many interesting streets of this city, a new 
charm pervades the way each time. Ancient houses are clustered thick ; and the more 
modern, with large garden appendage, are stately and invite a longing eye to explore 
their splendor and beauty. As the people are enriched by the products of the India 
trade, relics and curiosities are to be seen in the houses of the opulent. We pass the 
superb shops, visit the wharves where are moored the tall ships unlading their com- 
modities, and see the storehouses ready to crush with the weight of rich goods. And 
the imagination may readily invest many localities with the tokens of Asiatic magnifi- 



SALEM LINE. 247 



cence. The tramping elephant in the profound and impenetrated jungles of his native 
wilds, and all the host of Eastern celebrities — the fruit of ages of oriental wisdom 
and toil, are uppermost in the vivid picture the mind easily gets of the phenomena 
they have here of things rare and elegant. The records of the past are fine. It 
seems that no other City Clerk could respond to our call for examination of the 
books with so much princely dignity as this worthy incumbent. Or at the Court 
House, especially the Probate and the Law office, no other officers in the world could 
show us so much suavity and ready facility. And it is worth a more lengthy pilgrim- 
age than we make, to come and encounter the beauteous faces and eloquent eyes of 
the young, touched with every charm that virtue gives, making us feel refined and 
happy when here, and ready to yield them every attribute our mind can give, because 
we know their gracious surroundings. 

The increase afforded to this lineage is not very great, yet the superiority of the 
locality and of the community constrains us to place these pedigrees as a separate 
line. A larger neighboring city has more genealogies which are desultory and not 
extended, therefore such do not make a " Line " but are miscellaneous. 

Increase of numbers has its blessings. A large community, a large city or town, 
is like a great audience or assembly of persons temporarily together ; they are all on 
the watch and keep each other in check : there is not freedom but conformity, not ease 
but gentle restraint. When a person knows there are plenty of others near, beside, 
before, and around, — ready to hear, see, know and comment on all that transpires, 
there will be that wholesome fear to do wrong, that sensibility of the pleasure of doing 
right which is always approved and administers so greatly to the security, the happi- 
ness and the advancement of the great commonwealth of human interests. It is true 
that in closely compact society there is much occurs that touches and affects the indi- 
vidual, peculiarly personal, that becomes quickly observable, and that one would think 
rather ungenerous and unfair for others to be prompt to notice to a disadvantage, yet 
it is best never to despair ; but sweetly to tolerate this " surveillance of society " which 
is so annoying to the lover of individual privileges, yet is so vastly effectual to help 
us, urge us, and maintain us steady in that onward course which never ceases till time 
shall be merged in eternity, and all things be revealed without shadow or con- 
cealment.

252 GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



WEYMOUTH LINE. 



This is the most numerous line of family, and is of very worthy extraction. We are 
made positive of the early location of this good branch in England. In the arrange- 
ment of the families, we are recommended to resort to the method applied to the 
Concord Line ; and, under the first tabular group, will be given further directions. 
We commence on this page with the first progenitor, — 

ENOCH HUNT.

" Died on the 25th of September, in Provi- 
dence, at the residence of her brother-in-law, S. 
R. Weeden, Miss Caroline Blanding Hunt, 
daughter of the late Allen Hunt, Esq., of Seekonk, 
in the twenty-first year of her age. 

" Caroline Blanding Hunt, the subject of the 
present notice, was one in whom rare intellectual 
endowments blended, in attractive union, with the 
liveliest Christian virtues. Features expressive of 
earnest thoughtfulness, a heart all sympathy and 
tenderness, and piety of the liveliest cast, rendered 
her at once the light and the joy of the family 
group, the social circle, and the church. As a 
daughter, she was characterized by a cheerful obe- 
dience ; as a sister, by a constant and untiring 
affection ; as a friend, she was ever true ; and as a 
Christian, ever faithful. Age respected her for her 
thoughtfulness, and decision of character ; youth 
loved her for her cheerfulness, and admired her 
for the qualities of her mind ; and children now 
weep over her grave, because her winning look and 
gentle voice shall no more drive away their youth- 
ful sorrows nor gladden their mirthful hearts. 
With Nature she loved to hold communion ; and 
such communings prompted the expression of her 
feelings in poetry, which her diffidence kept hid- 
den from any but her intimate friends, but which 
was often beautifully written, and rich in poetic 
merit. 

" But it is on her Christian character that her 
friends now most fondly dwell. The Congrega- 
tional Church in Seekonk mourns the loss of a 
consistent and active member. Professing her 
faith in a crucified Redeemer at the early age of 
thirteen years, her path has since been the 'path 
of the just.' The sabbath school was the object of 
her warmest sympathy, of her active zeal, and 
of her most fervent prayers. To her class she was 
ever faithful.

25Q 



GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



"For some time past, she had indulged the 
presentiment, that she could not linger long on 
earth; that the Master Avould soon call for her. 
The language marked by her pencil some time be- 
fore her death, as consonant with her feelings, is 
most striking : — 

' I would sleep where the church-bells aye ring out, 
I would rise by the house of prayer, 
And feel me a moment at home on earth; 
For the Christian's home is there.' " 

The above tribute to the memory of Miss Hunt, 
by one who knew her well, is copied from the Bos- 
ton " Recorder." That which follows was prepared 
by another hand : — 

" Caroline was one of those blessed spirits that 
never die. When called to remove from one of 
the Father's 'mansions' to another, from the 
'earthly house' to that 'not made with hands,' 
they disappear from our sight, it is true, but still 
live in our hearts, and seem to be present with us 
almost as if the sweet tones of their voices were 
yet sounding in our ears. We cannot realize that 
they are gone, to be here no more; nor divest our- 
selves of the idea, that we shall soon see them 
again. 

" It is not easy to understand the secret of that 
power which is given to a very small portion of 
our race, by which they are enabled so to enshrine 
themselves in the hearts of their friends as to re- 
tain a place in the imagination, as if still present, 
long after they have passed away. Its effect has 
been beautifully described by Sprague in the ele- 
gant lines, beginning, ' I see thee still ; | and all 
who were intimately acquainted with Miss Hunt 
can testify that she possessed it in an eminent 
degree. 

" Her frank and cordial manner, her ready wit, 
the activity of her imagination, and the strength 
and ardor of her affections, combined to render 
her interesting as a companion, and invaluable as 
a friend. 

" When, at the age of thirteen, Caroline applied 
for admission to the church, she writes, ' My first 
thoughts on the subject of religion may be dated 
back to the days of my dear departed mother. As 
soon as I was old enough to think and understand, 
she used to read the Bible to me, and tell me of 
God's great goodness and loving-kindness to us in 
sending his Son to die for us; but what most af- 
fected my mind was her frequently taking me aside, 
and praying with me.' 

"In her journal, which she commenced keep- 
ing at a very early age, and in the little poetical 
effusions which she was in the habit of writing, 
frequent allusions are made to this dear friend of 
her childhood, who was indeed worthy of the best 
affections of her children. 

" With a heart capable of strong attachment, 
however, and with affections ardent, it was impos- 
sible that she should be destitute of enjoyment 



while dwelling in the bosom of a still numerous 
family, all of whom loved her most earnestly. We 
may well suppose, therefore, that she still enjoyed 
many happy hours in the ' sweet home ' of her 
childhood during the interval that occurred be- 
tween the death of her mother and that of her 
father, — a period of more than nine years. 

" This event — so sudden, so severely afflictive, 
and followed by so many circumstances calculated 
to lacerate the feelings and depress the spirits of 
one so sensitive — might well have been regarded 
as sufficient to complete ' an orphan's woe,' had it 
not been followed by another, almost as sudden 
and distressing ; which did, indeed, cause her cup 
of sorrow to overflow. Allusion is made to the 
death of her brother. 

" He was but a few years older than herself, and 
had been her most intimate playmate and compa- 
nion from her earliest childhood. After the death 
of her father, she seems to have clung to him more 
closely than ever ; and, when he was taken, she was 
lonely indeed. 

" It could hardly be supposed, however, that 
feelings so intense could always continue in the 
breast of a girl of sixteen. Nor was she always 
sad, although subject at times to deep depression 
of spirits ; but in pursuing her studies, in teach- 
ing, attending to household duties, and especially 
in ministering to the wants and cheering the heart 
of her aged grandparent with whom she lived, her 
mind gradually recovered from the double shock 
which it had received, and assumed a healthful 
activity. In her earlier years, she had probably 
indulged in visions of future distinction as a 
writer ; encouraged doubtless to believe that the 
talents which she possessed would eventually win 
for her a place among the children of song. Such 
hopes, however, were early dismissed ; and, when- 
ever she wrote, it was to give expression to the 
thoughts which were floating through her mind in 
the manner that seems to have been most natural 
to her, or, as was the case in a few instances, o 
please her friends. The sentiment of the following- 
verse is more than once expressed in her writings, 
and seems to have been the result of a deli- 
berate determination to abandon all hopes of 
fame : — 

' I cannot write; for on my burning brow 
The laurel wreath would wither, fade, and die: 
Adieu, false hopes of fame! which even now 
Too oft within my soul forbidden fly.' 

" The spirit which was the light of many hearts 
has fled. How desolate is now the home where 
once dwelt that happy family ! how cheerless the 
hours to her who has seen one generation after 
another fall by her side, but who had hoped 
to be blessed with the presence of this sweet 
comforter until her own weary pilgrimage should 
end!

Him who ' worketh all things after the counsel 
of his own will ' ! but how happy are they who

Dear Sir, — It gives me much pleasure to 
respond to your request in regard to the Hunt 
Family. The information is quite limited, and 
that will be only from early recollections. We 



WEYMOUTH LINE.

know but little of our ancestors beyond our grand- 
father. He was a native of Braintree, Mass. Sis 
name was David Hunt ; and we think his father's 
name also was David, and his grandfather's was 
John. 

He was, by his own account, born in Braintree 
or Quincy, July 18, 1745. His father died while 
he was very young ; and this left him quite igno- 
rant of his family connections. He had one sister, 
Mary, who married James Tirrell, and were sup- 
posed to have settled in Quincy. He was appren- 
ticed to a shoemaker at the age of fourteen, and 
remained till the age of twenty. 

One year after, he came to this place, then an 
almost unbroken wilderness ; there being but five 
families at this time. It was then called New 
Boston ; now, Gray. As one of the early pioneers 
of a new country, many not only pleasing but 
thrilling incidents might be related of him ; but 
have no time to do so at so short notice. Being 
a person of much penetration in regard to the 
future, he soon became a great landholder. He 
selected a beautiful rise of land, where he located, 
and spent the remainder of his days. It is a fine 
site, and still bears the name of Hunt's Hill. It 
is now divided into four good farms, and three of 
them are now occupied by his children and grand- 
children. In 1768, he married Miss Sarah Millet 
of Gloucester, Mass. By this marriage, he had 
four sons and one daughter ; two of which are now 
living (the youngest son and daughter), both nearly 
seventy years of age. 

He died at the advanced age of seventy-nine, 
in the year 1824. Much might be said of him in 
all the relations of life ; but there were two predo- 
minant principles in his character, — patriotism 
and benevolence. In him the poor always found 
a friend. 

His oldest son, David, settled in Gray, Me. ; 
his second son, Moses, in Windham, Me., where 
most of his family now reside. 

Nathan, the third son, remained at home on 
the old homestead. He died in 1856, Nov. 23, 
aged seventy-nine. Israel, the youngest son, set- 
tled in Portland, Me. Sarah, the youngest child, 
married Samuel Hodgdon, and lives on a farm her 
father gave her. 

His posterity are not numerous. There are 
some of the third, fourth, and two of the fifth, 
generation now living. The writer of this sketch 
is a daughter of Nathan, who married Miss Mary 
Haskell of Falmouth, Me., who is still living, at 
the advanced age of eighty-two ; with his youngest 
son, Hiram P. Hunt, constitutes the family at the 
old mansion. His oldest son, John, lives at Al- 
bany, Me. His second son, Elnathan, lives on a 
part of the original site of Hunt's Hill. The third 
son settled in Portland, Me. ; where he died in the 
year 1859, leaving a wife and four children. The 
two youngest daughters are married, and reside 
in Portland. 



After contributing what little information I 
have (and you can make any selection that is use- 
ful), I shall feel myself amply repaid for my 
trouble, and shall place myself on the list of sub- 
scribers for the work.

cutors. 

Second, to my wife, Lydia Hunt, I give the 
improvement of all my real estate, except what is 



hereafter given, and except also my woodland, to 
be enjoyed by her during her natural life. I also 
give her the like improvement of all my stock, 
farming utensils, &c, &c. . . . 

Third, to my nephew John Hunt I give and 
bequeath a piece of meadow in Beaver Brook, 
which I own in common with the legatees of my 
late brother, Seth Hunt, &c. . . . 

Fourth, to my grand-nephew Ebenezer Hunt I 
give the Mill-pond Meadow, he paying, &c, &c. 

Fifth, to my nephew Josiah Hunt I give a 
piece of salt meadow in the town of Quincy, 
which lies in common, &c. ; also a piece of cedar 
swamp, known by the name of the Hobart Swamp. 
I also give him all interest in a piece of orcharding 
lying near Deacon Vining's ; he, the said Josiah,

Sixth, all the rest and residue of my real and 
personal estate I give and bequeath to my nephew

doctor and nurse's bills, as is provided in my be- 
quest to her. And he is at liberty to cut wood

sure. 

And I hereby appoint my wife Lydia, and the

town of QuiNCY, formerly part of old Braintree. 
Such a world-wide fame as Mr. Hunt has for his 
peculiar intellectual labors makes his reputation 
co-eval with the " Merchants' Magazine," the 
chef d'oeuvre of his whole mature life. In that, 
his ability and excellence stand imperishable. 

"We therefore hardly need attempt to be minute 
in any minor particulars ; and, it will be seen, we 
have not obtained the data of the columns perfect. 
The salutatory address here added is prefixed to the 
" portrait number " of the " Magazine," cxxi., for 
July, 1849, vol. xxi., No. 1, pp. 144. The plate 
of that likeness we have tried in vain to find. 
The magazine bearing his name is continued to 
this day. 

Office of the " Merchants' Magazine," 
New York, July 1, 1849. 

We feel that we are taking a sort of liberty 
(a liberty, however, for which we shall offer no 
apology), in sending to our readers, with the first 
of the twenty-first volume of the " Merchants' 
Magazine and Commercial Review," a portrait of 
the editor. 

The motive which leads friend to send to friend 
the likeness of features, which the intercourse of 
years and old associations have rendered interest- 
ing, is as natural as it is proper. The intercourse 
which, during the last ten years, has existed be- 
tween the editor of the " Merchants' Magazine " 
and his numerous readers — the silent intercourse 
of mind with mind, springing out of a common 
interest, on his part as editor, on theirs as readers, 
on the same important topics — is not of precisely 
the same kind as that of friend with friend. We 
shall not, therefore, presume to speak for the many 
readers or Mends (if they will allow us to call 
them so) in New York and throughout the United 
States (cisatlantic and transatlantic), and, we may 
say, in the four quarters of the " great globe itself," 
for whom we have labored during the last ten 
years. What may be their feelings towards the 
humble individual who has, in this work, put forth 
his best energies to supply a want long felt, and to 
furnish to a most enlightened class of readers at 
once an organ for their views and a magazine of 
information for their use, it is not for him to guess : 
but, for himself, he can say, that as he has ad- 
vanced with his work, every year gaining larger 
views, and a clearer conception of the extent, the 
length and the breadth, of the great field of mer- 
cantile science which it has been his business and 
his pleasure to explore ; as his information, and 
sources of information, have increased and multi- 
plied ; as, in short, his knowledge of his subject, 
and with it his love of his subject, have grown and 
strengthened, — a kindly nearness of feeling has, 
at the same time, grown up in his own mind to- 
wards the large and increasing circle of readers 
for whom he has labored, and many of whom have 



accompanied him with their approval and support 
from the beginning of the work. 

The difficulties which attended that beginning, 
the labors that had to be performed and the obsta- 
cles to be surmounted before the work could be 
established upon a broad and safe basis, are known 
best to him who is least willing to speak of them, 
— the editor himself; but this much we may say, 
that the idea of the " Merchants' Magazine " was 
no sudden thought, — was not suggested by mere 
accident. It was a long time the subject of much 
thought and deliberation, before any active steps 
were taken towards carrying it out. In casting 
the eye around in the difficult search after some 
useful but unoccupied corner in the wide field of 
literature, it seemed to the editor as if every point 
was already occupied, every branch represented, 
except one, and that the very important subject 
of commerce and the mercantile interest. On the 
one hand, the professions — the divine, the law- 
yer, and the physician ; the farmer also, and the 
mechanic — had each one or more organs and ex- 
ponents in the periodical press. Even the railroad 
interest, new as it then was, had found a voice 
through the press ; while commerce, more or less 
connected with all other pursuits, was unrepre- 
sented. While the business concerns of commerce 
filled the huge columns of the daily press with 
advertisements and with shipping intelligence, and 
with matter relating to the every-day details of 
merchandise, on the one hand, there was not a sin- 
gle magazine of high or low pretensions, either in 
America, or, to the best of our knowledge, in Eu- 
rope, to represent and to advocate the claims of 
commerce. There were one or two dictionaries 
of commerce, and a few works intended for prac- 
tical purposes ; but a literature of commerce did 
not exist, even in name. The idea and the thing 
itself were yet to be developed. In 1839, the 
" Merchants' Magazine and Commercial Review " 
was established, without, we confess, so clear a 
conception as after-experience has furnished of the 
full import of the term commerce, in its broadest, 
largest, and truest sense or signification. Every 
branch of industry, almost every pursuit, may be 
said to come within its range. The interests of 
agriculture and manufactures, which produce, are 
identified with the interests of commerce, which 
distributes. The great topics of banking and 
finance, of railroad and canal communication, of 
mining, and of navigation by steam and sail, are 
all involved in the one great topic of commerce. 
A large part of the legislation of states and na- 
tions is devoted to the regulation of commercial 
operations. Courts of law and equity are daily 
deciding points in mercantile jurisprudence, grow- 
ing out of the constantly varying circumstances of 
commercial enterprise. How liberalizing and ex- 
panding are the pursuits of commerce, thus 
understood, in their effect upon the mind, is obvious, 
and is often remarked. The wants and the neces- 



278 



GENEALOGY OF THE HUNT FAMILY. 



sities of all nations, of all races of men, form 
elements in the calculations of the true merchant. 
He studies the condition and finds out the wants 
of all, to relieve them. It is his interest, it be- 
comes also his pleasure, to do so. He learns to 
look upon all nations as knit together by the ties 
of mutual dependence, to regard all men as kin- 
dred. The mercantile student learns the same 
lesson. To teach that lesson has been and shall 
BE one of the great purposes of the " Merchants' 
Magazine," The editor regards it as not the least 
of the happy results of the labors and studies to 
which his taste and his duty have led him in con- 
ducting this magazine, that they have strengthened 
and confirmed the disposition to look upon all men 
as brethren, and to regard with favor all measures 
which tend to unite them together in the unity of 
peace ; and to promote the reform of ancient 
abuses, however venerable. 

If the labors of the editor in this broad field 
have availed any thing ; if, in particular, he has 
done aught to direct literary effort into the hitherto 
neglected department of commerce, to_ promote 
the study of it as a science, and to establish some- 
thing worthy of the name of the literature oy 
commerce, — he will deem it a matter for rejoi- 
cing, but not boasting. Our thanks for the past we 



need not repeat. Our promise for the future is 
best guaranteed by past performance ; and, on 
commencing the twenty-first volume and second 
decennium, the editor feels, that in the true cosmo- 
politan spirit towards all mankind, without mental 
reservation of any caste or creed, but with perhaps 
a little heightened emotion towards the readers 
and patrons of the " Merchants' Magazine," he 
can subscribe himself, 

With great regard, your friend, 

Freeman Hunt. 

He departed this life in Brooklyn, N.Y., Tues- 
day, March 2, 1858, of a liver complaint. The 
obsequies were announced to take place from the 
house of his brother, John A. Green, in Quincy, 
on Sunday, March 7. 

A high and noble granite shaft, within an en- 
closed family -lot, is erected over his honored 
remains in Quincy. All we could offer in memory 
of the personal character of Mr. Hunt would 
be exceedingly careful and select, tender and con- 
solatory. His eldest son was counsellor-at-law in 
New York. Mrs. Hunt, 1st, ob., a. 24, Feb. , 
1830. Mrs. Hunt, 3d, daughter of Hon. William 
Parmenter, resides at East Cambridge.

Mr. Hunt was of the excellent and most-accepted 
Masonic order. Many years a devoted brother. 
He departed this life within the precincts of his 
lodge, and was conveyed to his house a corpse. 
He was of very plethoric habit, and had been 
taken by apoplexy. He was a shipsmith by 
trade, and one of the really best men that ever 
breathed. 

The family mansion now stands, old and pictu- 
resque, on Charter Street, the rear abutting 
upon " Copps-hill Square" Burying-ground, — 
a locality replete with the richest recollections 
of the good old days.

A silver flagon, given, "with a proper engraving 
thereon, by his fellow-workmen to Mr. Hunt 
on some special occasion ; also a splendid 
China pitcher, with the emblems, — are pre- 
cious mementoes in the family. 

The daughters began the practice of medicine in 
Boston, for a living, on independent principles, 
and had a measure of success. The youngest 
daughter soon relinquished business, and mar- 
ried Oct. 1, 1840, Edmund Wright. The eldest

Mehitable (Allen) Vinton ; of Thomas and Han-

(Green) Vinton ; of John and Ann Vinton, 
early settlers at Lynn. The very remarkable, 
good, and well-filled genealogy of Rev. Mr. 
Vinton supplies this and several other groups. 
The compiler bears testimony, that the author 
of that book is worthily esteemed as an aposto- 
lic man by all good people wherever he comes ; 
and all the merit that it claims may justly be 
awarded. Being a contemporary in the field 
of genealogic research, thus much and more 
the compiler can say, for this day or for fu- 
turity.

the Second Church (Quincy) ; the fourth is 
date of birth, and he was also baptized at 
Braintree. The records of First Church omit

Lieut. Hunt was married in Boston, after being 
published at Weymouth, Sept. 22, 1750. The

Feb. 17, 1862, says Mr. Hunt "well remem- 
bers his great-grandfather, who moved to Haw- 
ley more than sixty years ago, from some place 
which I cannot now name : I think, near Boston. 
His name was Josiah. He was born March, 
1727; died March 26, 1827, aged a hundred 
years. Grandmother tells us he had a brother 
Jeremiah and sister Hannah." Josiah and 
Elisha Hunt were valued at Williamsburg in

The evidence is not explicit, but of that descrip- 
tion which comes very sparingly to the accept- 
ance of the genealogist : merely it is significant, 
yet very strongly so, that Peter Hunt was the 
son of the Weymouth settler. The family of 
Enoch Hunt was plural in sons, as appears by 
the deposition, page 252 ; and, while there is 
too great probability of kindred to allow of 
leaving out Peter, there is not enough to admit 
Bartholomew, of the Rhode-Island Line, as 
another of the early Weymouth group. We 
cannot justly pronounce on the likelihood of 
other heads of early branches being of the 
same stock. Future investigations may dis- 
play such proximity very clear. Bristol Pro- 
bate, lib. i. folio 59, 60, one and a half page, 
will of Peter Hunt, June 19, 1689 ; proved 
Dec. 26, 1692. Gave to son Enoch, upland 
and swamp bought of Mr. Paine, that he 
bought of John Woodcock, on part of which 
his house stands ; also thirty acres swamp I 
had of father Bo wen, except small piece I have 
given son John ; also £100 worth of common- 
age. To son John, half of lands where his 



house stands ; half of lands east side of Pal- 
mer's River and New-meadow River, on both 
sides of Rocky River ; four acres salt meadow 
on Neck side ; a piece of swamp, formerly fa- 
ther Bowen's ; also £100 worth of commonage ; 
and (per deed of gift) ten acres joining Natha- 
niel Palmer, where Daniel Shepherdson lived. 
To son Ephraim, half of uplands where John 
and Ephraim live ; both sides of highway from 
Bowen's Bridge to the Hundred-acre Run ; half 
of meadow-ground east of Palmer's River; 
also £100 worth of commonage. To Benja- 
min, house, shop, and tools ; a hundred acres 
of Governor's Meadow ; seventy acres at Neck, 
called " Shaper's Tree ; " £130 of commonage. 
To daughter Judith Williams, and her two sons 
Nathaniel and Thomas Cooper, marsh at' 
Belcher's Creek; also £20. To son-in-law 
Samuel Peck, five shillings. To son-in-law 
James Willett, one shilling. To grand-daugh- 
ter Ann Pain, £5. To grand-daughter, £20. 
Residue, — all my share north side of Fresh 
Meadow, at Mr. Brown's pond, and Palmer's 
River; my land on Neck, by Jer Wheaton's 
lot at W. Carpenter's, — lot bought of Thomas 
Brown ; salt marsh bought of Brown ; marsh 
called " Three-men's-mow Marsh," of John 
Woodcock, sen. ; land in second division and 
on Great Plain ; lot of last division ; fifteen 
acres I bought of Rice Leonard, — to wife 
Elizabeth. £10 to Sarah Peck. Elder James 
Blake of Dorchester married the Widow Hunt, 
Sept. 17, 1695. She was dau. of Henry and 
Judith Smith, who came from County Norfolk, 
Eng. (see " Genealogical Register," iv. 319, 320).

Mr. Hunt was born to the slender fortune of the 
youngest child of a family of sixteen. His 
grandfather, by the mother's side, was a cler- 
gyman ; and it may be considered that prayers 
and blessings preceded his course in life. We 
early find the publishment of his banns of 
matrimony at Braintree, Jan. 10, 1766; then 
the return of marriage, on a slip of paper dated 
Feb. 20, 176* (the last figure obliterated), in the 
registry at Boston among the marriages by 
John Hill, J. P. He appears to have been 
active, enterprising, and accumulative, but not 
finally affluent. In 1775, he sold land in Bris- 
tol County; recorded at Taunton. In 1778, he 
was of Boston ; and then bought house and 
fifty acres land in Abington of M. Bates. In 
1782, he sold land he had bought of Actson. 
In 1783, he made a deed, to which his son 
Peter was witness. When in Boston, he car- 
ried on baking ; and was rated in ward two in 
1784. In 1787, his rate was £100; and the

proved Sept. 10, 1834 (on vol. lxxxii.). He 
mentions wife and daughters Abigail SafFord 
and Sally Doury (?). John Rogers was execu- 
tor. The amount of estate left was small. 
Mrs. Hunt, 1st, ob. June 21, 1813. Both 
daughters had families. The youngest was 
Mrs. Mittens, as the grandson says, who has 
kindly and pleasantly aided us.
